The second course : a novel

Book

2017
"Set between the hip and idyllic farm-to-table foodie communities of the Hudson Valley, and the hotspots of Brooklyn, the Hamptons, and Manhattan, The Second Course follows four old friends struggling to find their footing in a rapidly changing world. Food has always been Billy's language and her currency, but she isn't hungry anymore--and it's terrifying her. That is, until she attends a wedding and meets chef Ethan--an enigmatic powerhouse half her age. Billy is sure her life will never be the same, and she's right: she soon finds herself moving upstate to restart her culinary career with Ethan as her business partner--trading New York nightlife for hikes and foraging in the peaceful Hudson Valley. Back in the city, her three best friends, Lucy, Sarah, and Lotta each harbor secrets that threaten to tear their lives apart. Tensions are rising between the four women, and it will take one tragedy--and more than a few glasses of wine--for them to remember why they became friends in the first place. With the electrifying culinary prose of Stephanie Danler's Sweetbitter and the heart of Elisabeth Egan's A Window Opens, The Second Course is both a treat for the senses and an honest exploration of the shared conflicts, deep love and loyalty that bind a group of girlfriends together"-- Provided by publisher.
