    On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the slice. To her horror, she finds that her cheerful mother tastes of despair. Soon, she's privy to the secret knowledge that most families keep hidden: her father's detachment, her mother's transgression, her brother's increasing retreat from the world. But there are some family secrets that even her cursed taste buds can't discern.

Reviews of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Overall customer rating: 5.000
DonSchwartz

intriguing story

by DonSchwartz on Aug 5, 2010

Aimee Bender's new novel seizes and holds the reader's interest from the very first chapter. Marked by the writer's characteristic use of magical realism, it also tells the story of a family with a variety of human problems beyond the magical theme suggested by its title.
