A very nuanced but satisfying story about keeping a good marriage together -- in spite of betrayal. The world is not black and white -- which is sometimes hard to remember.

Even though this is a decades old cookbook, there are a lot of basic recipes for both everyday living and entertaining! Was glad to find another copy of this book to take to a second home.
