But April herself inherits only a recipe box. Her scheming Aunt Lily wants to overturn Grannys will and drag April off to Kansas City. The oil company wants to drain the marsh that nurtures Aprils cherished migrant bird visitors. And April herself misses Granny. The recipe box, however, has a special magic of its own, a magic that is deeply connected to Aprils own Native American family history and to the land. When April makes loaves of Disappearing Whole Wheat Bread, the wild magic of the recipe box leads her into a friendship with the Gonzales children, whose parents have been detained by immigration authorities. Together, the four children mix up a brew of hospitality that brings the colorful characters of this small town back to the same table.
