In August 1952, The Lemon Jelly Cake was released - a first novel by Madeline Babcock Smith, an unknown sixty-five-year-old grandmother. The book enjoyed incredible success and was named "Book of the Week" by the Associated Press. The Lemon Jelly Cake was rushed through five printings, but when the author died in December 1952, it slipped into oblivion. The Lemon Jelly Cake carries readers back to kinder, gentler times in Tory, a small town in central Illinois, at the turn of the century. Evoking a forgotten America of summer picnics, shaded front porches, and gentle humor, the tale has, as its center, food and gossip. A steady stream of humor prevails in this remarkable work that preserves an important moment in America.
