Over long nights and haute cuisine the history of the world unfurls before the watchful eyes of Mrs Feather and her young companion, David. Mrs Feather, however, may not be all that she appears to be. As David consumes Mrs Feather's lovingly prepared meals, so her world begins to consume him. (Libraries Australia summary)
