The Blurb

Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship. Unable to afford their townhouse, she has to move miles away from everyone, to the sleepy little seaside resort of Polbearne, 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.

My Thoughts

This is the first book that I have read by Jenny Colgan & I wasn't disappointed. It started off slow as we see Polly move to Mount Polbearne, a cut off little island in Cornwall to recover from a failed relationship & the collapse of her business. Then all off a sudden I was swept along with the book just like the tides that flood the causeway. I found myself caring what happened to Polly & willing her to make the right decisions. And most of all I just loved Neil. I want one. A real feel good read perfect for the beach and what a stunning cover it just calls for you pick it up
