It's the 1930's and seventeen-year-old Ondine is helping her mother in the kitchen of their family-owned Café Paradis on the French Riviera. Spirited and experiencing a broken heart, Ondine is just beginning to discover herself. When a mysterious new pops in, Ondine's life is forever changed.

Switch to modern-day NYC, where Céline, a Hollywood makeup artist who’s come home for the holidays, learns from her mother, Julie, that Grandmother Ondine once cooked for Picasso. You can guess what happens next: she travels to the town where her grandmother and Picasso first met.

This is a great read - one of those books that literally takes you away to another place and time. The mix of fictional characters and real life people in history makes this a story that envelops you into the joie de vivre that is the south of France.
