Recipe for a Perfect Wife
Due to constant currency fluctuation, prices are subject to change with or without notice.
When Alice Hale leaves a career to become a writer
and follows her husband to the New York suburbs, she
is unaccustomed to filling her days alone in a big, empty
house. But when she finds a vintage cookbook buried in
the basement, she becomes captivated by its previous
owner, 1950s housewife Nellie Murdoch. As Alice cooks
her way through the past, she realizes that within the
pages Nellie left clues about her life.
Soon Alice learns that while a Baked Alaska may seem
harmless, Nellie’s secrets may have been anything but.
When Alice uncovers a more sinister, even dangerous,
side to Nellie’s marriage, and has become increasingly
dissatisfied with her own relationship, she begins to
take control of her life and protect herself with a
few secrets of her own.
