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.

Fabulous Surprise!!!!!

I was slightly aprehesive when I started to read this as (with out sounding fussy!!) I don't tend to go for books if they aren't in the first person. However..... this really is one of my all time classics. I loved it so much so that it took me days to read the last few pages because I didn't one the book to end! I fellt that I could relate to this book so easily. Also despite my initial aprehensiveness, the author compensated this by Polly finding a little friend! A must read, utterly wonderful and such an amazing plot.
