In Bulgaria during the height of communism in the 1960s, six-year-old Manda survives her cruel grandmother and rural poverty by finding sheer delight in the world--plump vegetables, garden gnomes, and darkened attic corners. The young Manda endures severe beatings, seemingly indestructible. But as a middle-aged artist in newly democratic Bulgaria, she desperately tries to feed her damaged soul with intrepid creativity and humor.

A girl in the first half of the book grows into womanhood in the 1960s. Rich with Bulgarian culture, humor, recipes and imagery. Read, cook, cry and laugh- all at the same time. Fans of "Like Water for Chocolate" will love this novel.
