Dear Mr Beard, I sent my Magic Moments off yesterday, and that made me think of you.
I hope the cookies will remind Father of our life here. Or maybe I should say what life used to be, before the war changed everything...Hidden in the library of Delicious! magazine young intern Billie discovers the wartime letters of twelve-year-old Lulu Swan, written to distinguished food writer, James Beard.
Lulu's can-do spirit in the face of food shortages and other hardships help Billie come to terms with her own tragic past.
Until one day it occurs to her: Lulu Swan might still be alive...
