Go to catalog
Eating the cake her mother has prepared for her ninth birthday, Rose Edelstein discovers she has a gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the food she prepares. Soon, every bite Rose takes is filled with feelings not just her mother's but those of other people as well and what might have been a gift becomes a burden and then, perhaps, a curse.
