In a novel as warm and embracing as a family kitchen, Barbara Ors"Neal explores the poignant, sometimes complex relationships between mothers and daughters-and the healing magic of homemade bread. Professional baker Ramona Gallagher is a master of an art that has sustained her through the most turbulent times, including a baby at fifteen and an endless family feud. But now Ramonars"s bakery threatens to crumble around her. Literally. Shers"s one water-heater disaster away from losing her grandmotherrs"s rambling Victorian and everything shers"s worked so hard to build. When Ramonars"s soldier son-in-law is wounded in Afghanistan, her daughter, Sophia, races overseas to be at his side, leaving Ramona as the only suitable guardian for Sophiars"s thirteen-year-old stepdaughter, Katie. Heartbroken, Katie feels that shers"s being dumped again-this time on the doorstep of a woman out of practice with mothering. Ramona relies upon a special set of tools-patience, persistence, and the reliability of a good recipe-when rebellious Katie arrives. And as she relives her own history of difficult choices, Ramona shares her love of baking with the troubled girl. Slowly, Katie begins to find self-acceptance and a place to call home. And when a man from her past returns to offer a second chance at love, Ramona discovers that even the best recipe tastes better when you add time, care, and a few secret ingredients of your own.
