In a small hotel on an island renowned for its hospitality and beauty, the Balinese staff and their Western guests are unexpectedly taken hostage. During the overnight siege, the hotel's cook is compelled by the crisis to provide spiritual and physical sustenance as best she can to the guests, staff and their poorly nourished captors.
Perpetua de Mello makes sumptuous meals for tired Western tourists who stay at Bali's Elsewhere Hotel. The place had dreamy villas, a sparkling pool, lush gardens and views, so it should be the perfect holiday getaway. Instead, something shocking happens that compels each of the guests to think hard on the life they've lived so far. With dignity and wisdom, Perpetua tends to everyone -- nourishing them with food and compassion, and providing the sustenance that only comes from hard-won hope.--[P.4] cover.
