Emma  Sternberg - Love and Apricot Dumplings


A modern, intelligent novel, humorous and emotional

There is no such thing as a recipe for life. Or is it just that Sophie hasn't come across it yet? As it is, everything is going wrong for the 33-year-old from Hamburg – relationship broken, job lost, and then her beloved aunt Johanna dies. One thing, at least, is that Sophie inherits Johanna's guesthouse in the South Tyrolean Alps, and she sees this as the perfect opportunity to make a new beginning. The only trouble is, instead of an idyll in the mountains she finds herself facing a mountain hut without any guests, and then to top it all the kitchen staff have all made off. Whoever is now to make those famous apricot dumplings? She is on the verge of giving up when a new chef blows in. Will he also have a recipe for happiness?

“With a good dose of humour and charm, Emma Sternberg proves that life is like a recipe. Even when one seems to do everything right, when things are done without love the results are mostly unpalatable.”
