Can baking mend a broken heart? From the bestselling author of Meet Me at the Cupcake Café comes this deliciously funny, heartwarming and utterly inspirational new novel
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 favourite 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 bee keeper, 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.
A funny and heartwarming new novel from the author of "Meet Me At The Cupcake Cafe", this delicious story also features recipes. Published in time for Mother's Day, it follows a woman who moves away to a little seaside resort in Cornwall, and starts baking bread. 'Jenny Colgan has hit the sweet spot yet again...'
