The life of 31-year-old trophy wife Wynter Morrison suddenly changes course when her husband announces one evening that their marriage is over. Emotionally devastated and desperate for a change of scenery, Wyn moves to Seattle where she spends aimless hours at a local bakery, sipping coffee and inhaling the sweet aromas of freshly-made bread. These visits bring back memories of her long-ago apprenticeship at a French boulangerie, and when offered a position at the bakery, Wyn quickly accepts -- hoping that the rituals of baking will help her move on.

Working long hours among the bakery's cluster of eclectic women -- Linda, the irascible bread baker; earth mother Ellen and her partner Diane; and Tyler, the blue-haired barista -- Wyn awakens to the truths that she missed while living the good life in Hancock Park.

Soon Wyn discovers that making bread possesses an unexpected and wondrous healing power, helping her to rediscover that nothing stays the same... bread rises, pain fades, the heart heals, and the future beckons.

A pampered wife leaves the protective world of a society life and being totally supported by her husband. Her hand is forced when her husband announces the marriage no longer works. She goes to Seattle and works in a small bakery. She finds that bread making gives her a sense of purpose. She basically discovers who she is. I am familiar with Seattle so loved the descriptions of areas such as the Pike Street Market. I like the evocative language surrounding the scenes of baking. You can almost smell the bread. Plus there is practical information for the baker. I marked it down a bit because the love interest is fairly predictable. I found the development of the love relationship weak as the novel wraps up quickly at the end.
