The two main characters are sisters, Jess and Emily. They could not be more opposite but are still loyal and loving to one another.
Like baking a cake, different characters from the sisters’ lives get slowly folded into the mix, one by one, until the world of rare book collecting, Jewish mystics and computer programmers all become entwined.
Each character in this book has depth and flaws; you become frustrated, pitiful, excited, devastated and fall in love with each of them, even the more irritating characters!
This book is an easy, enjoyable read, perfect for the summer holidays
