With cherished recipes in hand and a determination to follow through with her promise, Karen sets Granny's plan in motion. Karen's husband, Tom, however, is less than enthusiastic about his grandmother's meddling. He hasn't seen his father—the man who abandoned Tom—his mother, and his younger siblings in decades, and the years have done nothing to diminish his bitterness. As the day of the funeral approaches, Tom must decide: will he allow himself to be consumed by his anger, or will he embrace the potential for peace?
Zucchini Pie is a heartfelt novel of connection, of a struggling family and the food that one wise old woman trusts will bring them back together.
