If what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger, why is Audrey growing weaker by the day? When her husband Geoff, a pastor, lost his job after a scandal rocked their congregation, Audrey's never lost faith. They decide to resurrect a failing bakery as a way to heal family wounds and restore their place in the community.
Running late to the bakery one foggy morning, Audrey strikes a vehicle. Emerging from her car into the fog, she discovers she hit a motor scooter. But there’s no rider in sight. Just blood. The absence of the driver is a mystery, especially to Sergeant Jack Mansfield, the detective and church member responsible for firing Geoff from his pulpit. The scooter belongs to Jack’s wife, Julie, a teacher at the local high school, who has vanished… like morning fog.
Though there is no evidence to support Jack’s growing suspicion that Audrey and Geoff were involved in Julie’s disappearance, the detective is convinced of their guilt. When he takes the tiny bakery and its patron’s hostage, Audrey must unravel the secret of Julie’s disappearance and her own mysterious suffering before Jack hits his breaking point.

Divides the Wheat from the Chaff

The Baker's Wife is one of the best books I've listened to in a long time. I love Christian fiction, and this one is exceptional on many levels. It's a crime drama (one of my favorite), and it also tells the story of two very different families, who profess to be Christians. Jack, police officer and deacon in the church, wears his "Christianity" like a cloak of righteousness, quipping out Bible verses like weapons against everyone he meets. He led the deacons and church to dismiss their pastor, Geoff for allegedly coercing Jack and Julie's daughter, Miralee into having an abortion. Now the pastor and his wife have opened a bakery together, and continue to serve the Lord. Geoff's wife, Audrey (The Baker's Wife) hits a motor scooter in dense fog one morning . . . but the rider is nowhere to be found. The story that unfolds is harrowing . . . and amazing.

A Book Worth Reading

This novel tells the story of God's power revealed through the frail actions of imperfect people. The characters in Erin Healy's book, The Baker's Wife, are portraits of depth and complexity. The plot is intricate and full of surprises. This is a book worth reading.
