Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune
by Roselle Lim
Pub Date 24 Jan 2020
An uplifting and magical debut about food, coming together and finding family in the most unexpected places. For fans of Jenny Colgan!
At the news of her mother’s death, Natalie Tan returns home to San Francisco’s vibrant Chinatown.
She’s shocked to discover that the neighbourhood is fading, and even more surprised to learn she has inherited her grandmother’s restaurant. Tasked by the community’s seer with cooking up three recipes from her grandmother’s old cookbook, Natalie must bring luck, courage and love to her struggling neighbours – before she can follow her own dreams.
Natalie has no desire to help the community that abandoned her to look after her mother all those years ago. But as love and friendship come knocking, Natalie realises that maybe her neighbours have been there for her all along . . .
