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.

A light Hearted read
Loved it...quite highly as the story sits with me.
I think the misery of failure was described very well as was the grief/anxiety waiting for the boats strongly told.
she's very good - some of the accents slightly off but I couldn't do better!
yes I had a few tears here & there!
I've enjoyed all these books - the story lines are a little Mills & Boon as they get their strong armed, toned chested young man...but the actual people studies are good - Jenny Colgan is a good story teller and that's what you want when you read/listen to a book...it's to escape and to be entertained! Also there is no graphic sex as per some of the other chick lit books, which I cannot bear!
