To help enjoy the “flavor” of this book, bring a peach dessert to share as we sample three of life’s greatest pleasures—eat, talk and read!

This final book in a four-part “Food for Thought” series is a delightful narrative on the author’s life as a Japanese American peach and grape farmer in California. Relationships, weather, the market, frustrations, and joys are all presented by Masumoto with poetic flair and a sense of humor.
