Natalie Tan returns home to San Francisco’s Chinatown upon hearing of her mother’s death.

After traveling the world, Natalie is drawn home to discover more than all the restaurants in the world could offer.

She finds herself in a withered version of the neighborhood she knew. Businesses are struggling; relationships are straining; and families are leaving. With the death of her mother, Natalie is left without any family. However, she has inherited her grandmother’s once vibrant restaurant, and the neighborhood seer gives her a prophecy which could save the community. Natalie must discover her own sense of place and responsibility, while exploring her family’s past. Natalie Tan unearths magical possibilities, delicious recipes, and most importantly, a new sense of family.

This debut novel incorporates themes of family, duty, and heritage into a well-woven narrative about food, community, and love. Rich in visual descriptions and whimsical writing, this book is a charming read.
