Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a quiet Yorkshire village, Roxanne couldn't wait to escape and find her place in the world in London. As a high-powered fashion editor, she lives a glamorous life of perennial singlehood - or so it seems to her sister, Della. But when Roxanne gets her heart broken by a fashion photographer, she runs away, back to Della's welcoming home above her bookshop in Burley Bridge.
But Burley Bridge, Roxanne discovers, is even quieter than she remembered. There's nothing to do, so Roxanne agrees to walk Della's dog, Stanley. It's on these walks that Roxanne makes a startling discovery: the people who live in Burley Bridge are, well, just people - different from the fashion set she's used to but kind and even interesting. Michael, a widower trying to make a go of a small bakery, particularly so. Little by little, cupcake by cupcake, Roxanne and Michael fall into a comforting friendship.
Could there be a life for Roxanne after all in the place she's spent 46 years trying to escape?
