I'm not one to write reviews and I should since I do own nearly 500 books on audible. But, there was something different about this book that I could not stop listening to it. I like a book with many characters with different lives with different everyday problems and some that last for years and hidden ones as well. Just when I knew I had it figured out, I was found to be wrong. This story could be a real life story, easily. Well it does seem to have a bit of magic in it. All I can say is, the characters are just so good, a well written story with love, everyday life events, future, disappointments made right. Please Linda Francis Lee, keep writing those wonderful stories.

Emily and Einstein by Linda Francis Lee is one of my favorite books, I may have liked The Glass Kitchen even more. In fact, when I finished reading I wanted to start over at the beginning, just to make sure I didn't miss anything.
The Glass Kitchen is the sweet and poignant story of two young girls recovering from the loss of their mother, but it's mostly the story of twelve year old Ariel coming to terms with the accident that she believes is her fault, she also believes she's disappearing.
It's the story of Portia, whose husband left her for her best friend. Portia has the ability to know what food to make to heal the people around her, she inherited this ability from her grandmother. After her husband dumps her, she moves from Texas to New York to the garden apartment left to her by her great-aunt. Her two sisters sold their parts of the apartment to Gabriel (father of Ariel)and he wants the last section of the building.
This is a book of family, failure, success, and love. It's also a book about the healing powers of food.
I read this book when it first came out, so knew I would enjoy the audiobook. My only complaint (and it's a tiny one) is that Gabriel didn't sound like I imagined him.
