Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I adored this story. I would recommend it to anyone.
The writing had an allure and honesty about it. I liked the imagery that the author, Roselle Lim, was able to portray. She brought the characters, setting, and plot to life as insights of cultural perspective intertwined with stories of self-discovery, intrigue, grief, sorrow, guilt, shame, happiness, and joy. It was touching and charming. And it included lovely recipes, I’m looking forward to trying them all!
