Two women adrift in New York-an Iraqi Jewish widow and the latchkey daughter of a chef-find each other, solace, and a new kind of family through their shared love of cooking. Lorca spends hours poring over cookbooks, seeking out ingredients for her distracted chef of a mother, who is about to send her off to boarding school. In one last effort to secure her mother's love and prove herself indispensable, Lorca resolves to replicate her mother's ideal meal, an obscure dish called masgouf . Victoria, an Iraqi-Jewish immigrant, teaches cooking lessons; Lorca signs up. Grappling with grief over her husband's passing, Victoria has been dreaming of the daughter they gave up forty years ago. Together these two women - a widow and an almost-orphan - begin to suspect they are connected through more than a love of food. In these lessons and their separate investigations, they will be forced to reckon with the past, the future, and the truth - however complicated and unimaginable it might be. Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots is a novel of loss, remembrance, and revival. It is the heartrending, heartwarming story of two cast-off characters who find in each other a way of accepting the people we are meant to love-- even ourselves.
