Nowhere but Home

From Elaine Pasquali
Title:  Nowhere but Home
Author:  Liza Palmer
Queenie Wake returns to her home town with a resume studded with  firings as a chef.  Queenie arrives on her sister, Merry Carole’s, doorstep with no plan for her future but many expectations of being shunned by the town people.  Merry Carole has made a life for herself and tries to help Queenie do the same.  Queenie’s way of coping has always been running: from the town, from her memories, from her anger.  Out of desperation, Queenie takes a job at a near-by prison preparing inmates’ last meals.  Thus, Queenie begins her journey of self-exploration.  A well-written and compelling read.
