About this item

Susan Jones, a brash and ballsy chef who hopscotches from one demanding restaurant job to the next, was barely in her 20’s when she married and had a son, Henry. But after her marriage to Andrew, an attorney from an ultra-conservative Pasadena family, fell apart, she ceded most of the raising of the baby to her mother-in-law, the very opinionated Edith Vale, a woman as formidable and steely as her stiff blond bouffant, the veritable helmet that helps her soldier through life. Now, after letting Henry drift away, Susan is determined to make things right, but just as mother and son seem to make headway after embarking on a cross-country road-trip, things take a darker turn for Henry. When the family reconvenes in California, Henry undergoes medical treatment (and pursues a first romance with Luz, the brainy granddaughter of Edie’s longtime housekeeper) while Susan cooks and everybody eats. Susan and Edie, at first always at odds, must fight to find humor and courage in the face of a situation that threatens to change the family forever.
