Recipes & Wooden Spoons is one of more than twenty-five books in the series Tales from Grace Chapel Inn. Once readers visit the charming village of Acorn Hill, they'll never want to leave. And they'll love spending time with the Howard sisters, who have begun a new life together in their childhood home, a gracious Victorian house that is now a bed and breakfast called Grace Chapel Inn. Here they rekindle old memories, rediscover the bonds of sisterhood, revel in the blessings of friendship, and meet many fascinating guests along the way. While cleaning out the cluttered basement in Grace Chapel Inn, Jane Howard finds an old cookbook brimming with her mother's recipes and handwritten notes. Jane has always been hungry for details about her mother Madeleine's life, as she died while giving birth to Jane. Through these precious, fragile pages, Jane comes to discover the spirit of the mother she never had the chance to know and love. However, the more she finds out about her mother, the more her sense of loss deepens. Her older sisters, Alice and Louise, had a rich history with their mother before she died. Jane never knew her. And she is treated more like a child by her sisters than an equal, even though she is now fifty years old! At sixty-two and sixty-five respectively, Alice and Louise find the habit of mothering Jane hard to break. Especially after she comes back home to Acorn Hill after the devastating betrayal from her husband Justin. Jane left a whole life behind in San Francisco as a famous chef, for what? To become the innkeeper and chef at a sleepy bed-and-breakfast. Was the switch worth it? Has Jane really found the inner peace and tranquility that she's been lacking since her divorce? Was the move back home really the best move for her?
