Five Quarters of the Orange, by Joanne Harris

An elderly woman returns to the French town where she grew up during WWII to perhaps settle a score.  She sets up a small successful restaurant and reminisces about the war years when she and her mother, brother, sister,  German occupants and townspeople interact. It’s a tale of food, a disfunctional family and coming of age.

RATING: * * * * Very, very good
