Reviews

  • "extremely engaging novel ... fictionalises its fascinating historical sources so successfully that it reads like the work of a veteran storyteller. Her career as a screenwriter and producer is probably responsible for that, as for the cinematic quality of this entertaining book."

  • "Despite the backdrop of WWII, Beecham keeps the tone light and serves up a sliver of romance and dollops of heart-warming hope. She also - deftly and subtly - educates readers about that time in our history."

  • "Sometimes when I start a book it feels like I’m shaking hands with an old friend, or sitting by the fire sipping a glass of red wine. It’s how you know you are in the hands of an excellent storyteller, that feeling of complete ease with the unfolding scene. MAGGIE’S KITCHEN is that kind of book. It welcomes you in, and you are pleased to make its acquaintance."

  • "presents the touching story of Maggie Johnson while highlighting in intricate detail the tumultuous and precarious times of WWII in London ...Maggie’s Kitchen is a tale of love, courage, and the restorative power of food."
