You could almost smell the bread cooking!,
This review is from: The Baker's Apprentice (Hardcover)
This was a great book. I had no idea that it was a sequel to 'Bread Alone' and it stood up perfectly well on its own. In fact it reminded me of 'Chocolat' by Joanne Harris.
Wyn Morrison works the night shift at the Queen Street Bakery in Seattle. Her man of the moment is Mac, a barman who is also struggling with his first novel. He's a bit of a commitment-phobe and has a tendency to disappear off for long periods of time, writing / finding himself. This is not a great recipe for a romantic love life and it causes Wyn considerable heart-ache.
Meanwhile young, blue haired Tyler decides she wants to learn the art of baking instead of working by day in the cafe.
As tragedy hits Tyler, the landlord raises the rents and the chief cake decorator disappears, life at the bakery is far from dull!
A most enjoyable homely book - You could almost smell the bread cooking!
Plus delicious recipes dotted through the text. I can't wait to read 'Bread Alone'
