"Filled with cherished memories and treasured recipes, The Recipe Box is a touching tribute to the women and food that unite us and connect our past to the present." —Richard Paul Evans, #1 New York Times bestselling author
In The Recipe Box, beloved author Viola Shipman spins a tale about a lost young woman and the family recipe box that changes her life.
Growing up in northern Michigan, Samantha “Sam” Mullins felt trapped on her family's orchard and pie shop, so she left with dreams of making her own mark in the world. But life as an overworked, undervalued sous chef at a reality star's New York bakery is not what Sam dreamed.
When the chef embarrasses Sam, she quits and returns home. Unemployed, single, and defeated, she spends a summer working on her family's orchard cooking and baking alongside the women in her life—including her mother, Deana, and grandmother, Willo. One beloved, flour-flecked, ink-smeared recipe at a time, Sam begins to learn about and understand the women in her life, her family's history, and her passion for food through their treasured recipe box.
As Sam discovers what matters most she opens her heart to a man she left behind, but who now might be the key to her happiness.
The Recipe Box is a warm and heartfelt audiobook listeners will love.

"Sam Mullins left her family orchard in Michigan to work for a cantankerous celebrity chef in New York. Then one disastrous day she walks out and flies home to mull over what's next. Susan Bennett does a beautiful job narrating Sam's discovery of family stories, recipes, and . . . herself. Bennett's delivery of Sam's sprightly but faltering speech contrasts well with that of her grandmother, Willow, whose confident and dynamic voice has just the right gravelly quality to reflect her age. Bennett is masterful in her differentiation of the three generations of Mullins women, and she injects authenticity into the New York and Jersey accents that are peppered into this love letter to Michigan summers.
