The Baker's Apprentice
3 journalers for this copy...
Amazon Editorial Review:
The sequel to Judith Ryan Hendricks' absorbing debut novel, Bread Alone
Having found her calling, Wynter Morrison is blissful about her new career in Seattle as a baker -- cherishing the long days spent making bread and the comforting rhythms of the Queen Street Bakery. Still, she struggles with the legacy of her failed marriage and with her new boyfriend Mac's reluctance to share his mysterious past. When Mac abruptly leaves Seattle, Wyn again feels abandoned and betrayed, at least until intimate letters arrive in which Mac at last reveals his deepest secrets. But the more she learns about her absent lover, the more Wyn discovers about herself -- and when tragedy threatens, she will have to decide if there is a place for Mac in this new life she has made.
I really enjoyed this sequel to Bread Alone, which I read some time ago. Someone lent me this book to read and afterwards I discovered that I had my own copy buried in a box of books. Hmm...time to organize my books, I think.
Picked up tonight from loveamystery - at the Burnaby BookCrossing Meetup.

Picked this up at Rhizome during meetup. Loved every minute of it. Seattle came across just as I've seen it and the Yukon part was like a visit to Northern Exposure. That bakery was just like the one I worked summers in, although we had a much smaller and more boring output. The characters were real and the descriptions were vivid.
