Publisher's Summary

It's amazing how quickly your whole world can unravel...

Thirty-six year-old Olivia is an artist who’s just been let go from her day job. Also, the presumed love of her life has suddenly decamped to another continent to avoid a lawsuit - but all of this pales when Olivia finds out that her beloved grandmother, the woman who raised her, has had a stroke. 

Olivia rushes back to her hometown of Stafford Falls to care for her Nana only to find that the odd little place where she grew up has changed. For one thing, she keeps running into a perpetually smiling Buddhist monk who offers to teach her the secret to great happiness. And then there’s that intriguing woman with the beautiful smile and kind eyes who is opening a café that serves life-saving espressos. 

As Nana recovers, Olivia finds herself making a life in the little town, but when her backlog of unsold paintings starts to sell and suddenly it’s raining jobs back in the city, will she be able to leave Stafford Falls?

Told with warmth and wit, The Kitchen Sink Sutra is an uplifting story about family, best friends, and the importance of a really good cup of coffee.

Just a bit meh

It felt like when you're watching a great tv show and they have that filler episode to get through the season. This whole book felt like that. Nothing remarkable. Kinda felt like a hallmark movie. Girls life explodes. Girl moves home to small town. Learns to love it. Finds love. The end. A pleasant enough listen but no real love story like it implies. Author just dips toe into Olivia + Julias relationship. Olivia barely thinks about Julia in her life and you forget they are even together through most of the story. Narrator was fine but no Abby Craden. 😔

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
