Description

Angel Tungazara runs a small business, baking cakes for the parties and celebrations of her neighbours. As her customers tell her their stories, Angel comes to realize how much each of them has to mourn as well as what they have to celebrate. And, finally, she comes to accept how much that is true of her too...This is a uniquely charming, gently moving, deliciously funny novel about life, love and cake. Ultimately, it shows how the human spirit - even when pushed to its limits - endures and unifies us all.show more
