The Cookbook Collector

The Cookbook Collector
by Allegra Goodman

Allegra Goodman has been described as a "modern-day Jane Austen" and this novel is an adaptation of Sense & Sensibility. Emily Bach is a 28 yr old CEO of a software company while her sister, Jessamine, is a 23 yr old philosophy student. Emily is scientific & organized and Jess is passionate & scholarly.

Set in backdrop of Silicon Valley in the 90's, the novel carries through to the sobering reality of 9/11. I absolutely loved the story and didn't want the novel to end. I can't recommend it enough.
