2 - Whisk eggs and sugar until lightly foamed, then whisk in butter, baking powder, lemon juice and zest. Leave for about 20 minutes.

The Woman Who Upped and Left
by Fiona Gibson

Audrey is often seized by the urge to walk out of her house without looking back – but she can’t possibly do that.

Review and giveaway coming up here later this week...
