- THE FOOD OF LOVE : BOOK 1 - LAURAS STORY
DetailsA proud family. Snubbed by aristocratic neighbour Lord Frampton at a coming-of-age ball, Donald Oliver dreams of the day hell have his vengeance. A wild daughter. Laura Oliver, beautiful and tempestuous, falls in love with Giovanni, an Italian ex-prisoner-of-war, now a humble cook. Disdaining her father's snobbishness - and his wrath - the couple flee to London. A desperate hope. Giovanni and Laura arrive to a city that has not yet re-awoken after the trauma's of war. Facing destitution, only their love for one another and their dream of opening a restaurant business keeps them going. From Cotswold's farmland to London fish markets, society ballrooms to icy gutters, this is a tale of prejudice and ambition, power and passion, and one couples struggle to overcome all obstacles and carve out a life of their own.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: As a cook, restaurateur, food writer and business woman, Prue Leith has played a key role in the revolution of Britains eating habits since the 1960s.
