Charmaine Wilkerson's Black Cake (Libro.fm | Bookshop.org)
From the publisher:
"We can’t choose what we inherit. But can we choose who we become?
"In present-day California, Eleanor Bennett’s death leaves behind a puzzling inheritance for her two children, Byron and Benny: a traditional Caribbean black cake, made from a family recipe with a long history, and a voice recording. In her message, Eleanor shares a tumultuous story about a headstrong young swimmer who escapes her island home under suspicion of murder. The heartbreaking tale Eleanor unfolds, the secrets she still holds back, and the mystery of a long-lost child, challenge everything the siblings thought they knew about their lineage, and themselves.
"Can Byron and Benny reclaim their once-close relationship, piece together Eleanor’s true history, and fulfill her final request to 'share the black cake when the time is right'? Will their mother’s revelations bring them back together or leave them feeling more lost than ever?
"Charmaine Wilkerson’s debut novel is a story of how the inheritance of betrayals, secrets, memories, and even names, can shape relationships and history. Deeply evocative and beautifully written, Black Cake is an extraordinary journey through the life of a family changed forever by the choices of its matriarch."
Rebecca Serle’s One Italian Summer (Libro.fm | Bookshop.org)
From the publisher:
"When Katy’s mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol wasn’t just Katy’s mom, but her best friend and first phone call. She had all the answers, and now, when Katy needs her the most, she is gone. To make matters worse, their planned mother-daughter trip of a lifetime looms: to Positano, the magical town where Carol spent the summer right before she met Katy’s father. Katy has been waiting years for Carol to take her, and now she is faced with embarking on the adventure alone.
"But as soon as she steps foot on the Amalfi Coast, Katy begins to feel her mother’s spirit. Buoyed by the stunning waters, beautiful cliffsides, delightful residents, and, of course, delectable food, Katy feels herself coming back to life.
"And then Carol appears - in the flesh, healthy, suntanned, and 30 years old. Katy doesn’t understand what is happening, or how - all she can focus on is that she has somehow, impossibly, gotten her mother back. Over the course of one Italian summer, Katy gets to know Carol, not as her mother, but as the young woman before her. She is not exactly who Katy imagined she might be, however, and soon Katy must reconcile the mother who knew everything with the young woman who does not yet have a clue.
"Rebecca Serle’s next great love story is here, and this time it’s between a mother and a daughter. With her signature 'heartbreaking, redemptive, and authentic' (Jamie Ford, New York Times best-selling author) prose, Serle has crafted a transcendent novel about how we move on after loss, and how the people we love never truly leave us."
