The year is 1941 The place is London Maggie Johnson is still trying to come to terms with the death of her fianc Peter killed in action Part of her is holding out hope that the information is wrong Meanwhile she gets on with doing what she does best cooking and caring for others Her concern ends up including her cousin Rose twelve year old Robbie who is battling to believe his missing father is okay and the Polish refugee Janek When The Ministry of Food calls for the opening of British Restaurants Maggie is interested She and Peter had dreamed of opening their own restaurant Now that he is gone can she do this alone She resolves to give it a try and so Maggie s Kitchen opens its doors Not all is smooth sailing from that point Complications arise with Maggie s Kitchen but also with Maggie s personal lifeMaggie is an engaging and likable character Robbie adds a bit of childish mischief The whole concept of these British Restaurants during war time was something I had not heard about before so that was interesting although at times I felt the reader got a bit overloaded with food sourcing and menus and such There are some recipes for some of the meals at the end of the book but I never felt inclined to try any of them Others may While I enjoyed this book it did seem to drag on a bit at times and then the ending felt rather abrupt While I enjoyed it I preferred Caroline Beecham s later novel Eleanor s Secret Still this is a good read with good characters and presents a little different view of wartime and the shortages and ingenuity of making do and sourcing ingredients involved A well researched novel

Nts to feed tired and hungry Londoners during WWII Maggie Johnson seems close to realising a long held dreamNavigating a constant tangle of government red tape Maggie's Kitchen finally opens its doors to the public and Maggie finds that she has a most unexpected problem Her restaurant has become so popular that she simply can't find enough food to keep up with the de. This book was such a delight Not too heavy on the Historical Fiction and there s a hint of RomanceChick lit in it too The plot line might not be very appealing at first glance but I promise you it s amazing It s not completely flawless by any means but it s a very easy and light read that ll have you flip those pages like crazyOne thing I particularly liked about this book is Maggie s passion for cooking and opening her own restaurant It reminded me so much of Tiana from Princess and The Frog a movie I completely adore and her determination to open up her own restaurant and cook for people and make her family proud Maggie was a lot like her in many ways fierce loyal and kindhearted The ideal protagonist if I do say so myselfThen we have the articulate writing that weaves the story together so brilliantly The author basically had me salivating over the delicacies that were presented in the book Couldn t help but sneak myself a slice of custard pie and a warm cup of tea that goes perfectly with this novel I also wanted to point out the unlikely friendship that was formed between Maggie and Robbie To think of it she was of a mother to him cooking his favorite meals allowing him to stay over for the night and rest It was interesting that their bond was much stronger than anyone else s and you understand why as you go through the book Lots of friendship blossom as the book progresses A bit of drama involved but that s as far as it goesIt s amazing how the author is able to centre the story around the world war and the unlikely events that are occurring during that time It brings about a new perspective to fans of Historical Fiction like myself There s just so much to the World War than air raids and tragedies Maggie s Kitchen emphasizes on the fact that sacrifices are important and that there is always hope even when society is collapsingI would love to read of Beecham s works Is it too much to ask for a seuel if there isn t one already I d love to know what happened Plus the book includes recipes for all he meals mentioned in the story How neat is thatSuch an amazing book I highly recommend it to you kitchen crazed bookworms or just anyone in generalThank you Allen and Unwin for sending a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
