From Scratch by Tembi Locke Book Summary

Now a limited Netflix series starring Zoe Saldana!

This Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick and New York Times bestseller is “a captivating story of love lost and found” (Kirkus Reviews) set in the lush Sicilian countryside, where one woman discovers the healing powers of food, family, and unexpected grace in her darkest hours.

It was love at first sight when actress Tembi met professional chef, Saro, on a street in Florence. There was just one problem: Saro’s traditional Sicilian family did not approve of his marrying a black American woman. However, the couple, heartbroken but undeterred, forged on. They built a happy life in Los Angeles, with fulfilling careers, deep friendships, and the love of their lives: a baby girl they adopted at birth. Eventually, they reconciled with Saro’s family just as he faced a formidable cancer that would consume all their dreams.

From Scratch chronicles three summers Tembi spends in Sicily with her daughter, Zoela, as she begins to piece together a life without her husband in his tiny hometown hamlet of farmers. Where once Tembi was estranged from Saro’s family, now she finds solace and nourishment—literally and spiritually—at her mother-in-law’s table. In the Sicilian countryside, she discovers the healing gifts of simple fresh food, the embrace of a close knit community, and timeless traditions and wisdom that light a path forward. All along the way she reflects on her and Saro’s romance—an incredible love story that leaps off the pages.

In Sicily, it is said that every story begins with a marriage or a death—in Tembi Locke’s case, it is both. “Locke’s raw and heartfelt memoir will uplift readers suffering from the loss of their own loved ones” (Publishers Weekly), but her story is also about love, finding a home, and chasing flavor as an act of remembrance. From Scratch is for anyone who has dared to reach for big love, fought for what mattered most, and those who needed a powerful reminder that life is...delicious.

Refreshing and different. I love that this speaks to a different view of Italy then the age old stories of mainstream romance novel, love and wish the author all the luck

Beautiful Love Story. A spectacular and loving story about two redefining the meaning of true love for me. I also cried for a full 20 pages and I’ve never done that.

Have a Kleenex box at hand. I loved how this book was so full of emotion and how you were truly able to feel Tembi’s pain. She depicted her story very well and it was not hard to picture it all so easily.

From Scratch. Best read ever

Just wow. Amazing writer. Beautiful story. I only got a chance to read the sample. Her story is so beautifully written. You can see and feel her experiences. It also gives you another look at Florence. I can’t wait til the whole book drops

Stunning portrayal of grief, love, and family.. This novel’s heartbreakingly accurate portrayal of grief, combined with the honest and tumultuous depiction of how family can both build you up and tear you down, took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed and cried in turns while falling in love with each and every character. I can not recommend this book enough!
