Why did I love this book?
I loved it partly because it was riveting, page to page, but also because the author, with humor and emotion and wit, brought to life fascinating characters and the challenges of an independent woman in the ‘60s.
Elizabeth Zott, a gifted research chemist unable to find work in her field, has to star in a cooking show. Hilarity ensues, along with character-building challenges, tragedy, romance, and a mystery surrounding her early life.
Every page was a delight. No wonder it’s still #1 on the bestseller list. After writing this, I feel I must read it again!
