I hope the cookies will remind Father of our life here. Or maybe I should say what life used to be before the war changed everything....

Hidden in the library of Delicious! magazine young intern Billie discovers the wartime letters of 12-year-old Lulu Swan, written to distinguished food writer James Beard. Lulu's can-do spirit in the face of food shortages and other hardships help Billie come to terms with her own tragic past. Until one day it occurs to her: Lulu Swan might still be alive....
