Book Spotlight: The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry

Now available in paperback with a cool new cover: 

About the book: After the unexpected death of her parents, shy and sheltered Ginny Selvaggio, a young woman with Asperger’s syndrome, seeks comfort in the kitchen.  The rich aroma of ribollita, painstakingly recreated from her Italian grandmother’s handwritten recipe, calms her senses.  But it also draws an unexpected visitor—the ghost of Nonna herself—and Ginny soon discovers she has the power to call forth the spirit of any dead person whose dish she prepares.  As her pragmatic sister pushes to sell the only home she has ever known, Ginny finds evidence of a provocative riddle from her parents’ past that could be the key to her uncertain future.  But can she cook up a dish that will bring them back long enough to help her solve it?
