Cheri Laser’s first novel is full of emotion and intrigue, rich with vividly painted characters who love, laugh, and hurt one another. The seductive page-turner takes an Irish-Italian immigrant family through American history as the 20th century’s complexities unfold. The lives and mysteries shaped during that era reach out to claim Megan Cole in 1988 when, as part of a carefully crafted plan, her grandmother shares with her the intimate details of her ancestry. That story leads Megan to an accumulation of secrets that ultimately explodes, with shocking consequences for the family. In the end, when The Truth about Cinnamon has been fully revealed, nothing about Megan’s own life will ever be the same again.
