Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship. Unable to afford their flat, she has to move miles away from everyone, to a sleepy little seaside resort in Cornwall, where she lives alone above an abandoned shop. And so Polly takes out her frustrations on her favorite hobby: making bread.
But what was previously a weekend diversion suddenly becomes far more important as she pours her emotions into kneading and pounding the dough, and each loaf becomes better and better. With nuts and seeds, olives and chorizo, with local honey (courtesy of local beekeeper, Huckle), and with reserves of determination and creativity Polly never knew she had, she bakes and bakes and bakes...and people start to hear about it. Sometimes bread really is life...and Polly is about to reclaim hers.
"This confection of a novel...will please her fans and can be recommended to readers who enjoy novels by Jill Mansell and Jojo Moyes." (Booklist)

Mediocre story with terrible narration
- Nancy E. Henslee
Narrator sounds like she doesn't like men
She has the loveliest female voice but made all the men sound like werewolves. I had a hard time rooting for the love story since all the men sounded like a beasts.
