The following quote sums this novel up nicely: “Glorious escapism . . . A foundling turned star baker, a tough childhood, the Yorkshire moors and a dashing neighbour are a winning mix in this bittersweet novel with nods to the Brontes.” —The Lady
I notice that I am doing a lot of comfort reading recently…hmmm. Well, I do still have Anna Karenina with its vast panorama, complex relationships and depiction of the Russian social classes to finish. Meanwhile…this novel was a soothing read. We watch as Alice rebuilds her life following a tragedy, is helped by many along the way and finds herself. There is adoption, romance, baking, antiques, friends…great ingredients indeed! Try it.
