Get ready to cheer for Kate Cadogan, a fortysomething woman who has spent her life trying to please her husband, her son, her mother, and her father without a moment's thought to her own needs. Until one day, when a series of events causes her to slip back in time…
For the first time Kate sees her life clearly–her dreams of becoming a caterer; the delicate yet combustible relationship she shares with her mother; and the unflagging support of her two best friends.
Kate finds the courage to make a break and, energized by her newfound freedom, she creates a life all her own.
Buoyant and deeply moving, Cover the Butter proves that starting over has nothing to do with age and everything to do with spirit.
"[Kabak's] way of encapsulating decades in a few swift strokes takes this tale well beyond the standard middle-age revenge formula." –Kirkus Reviews
