About the book: A solitary artisan. A legacy of bread-baking. And one secret that could collapse her entire identity.

Liesl McNamara's life can be described in one word: bread. From her earliest memory, her mother and grandmother passed down the mystery of baking and the importance of this deceptively simple food. And now, as the owner of Wild Rise bake house, Liesl spends every day up to her elbows in dough, nourishing and perfecting her craft.

But the simple life she has cultivated is becoming quite complicated. Her head baker brings his troubled grandson into the bakeshop as an apprentice. Her waitress submits her recipes to a popular cable cooking show. And the man who delivers her flour --- a single father with strange culinary 
habits --- seems determined to win Liesl's affection.

When Wild Rise is featured on television, her quiet existence appears a thing of the past. And then a phone call from a woman claiming to be her half-sister forces Liesl to confront long-hidden secrets in her family's past. With her precious heritage crumbling around her, the baker must make a choice: allow herself to be buried in detachment and remorse, or take a leap of faith into a new life.

My Thoughts:
This book was not an easy one to get into. It took time to fully enjoy the lyrical prose that Christa created.
Lisel's life is all about bread. The art of making bread has been passed down from generations in Lisel's family. She has a quiet life, but it is getting disturbed in ways she really isn't ready for. 
Cecelia comes into her bakery the Wild Rise, with her class for a field trip, and she is taken with the little girl. She soon finds out that Cecelia's father, Seamus is the man who delivers flour to her bakery. 
When her bakery is featured on T.V. she is contacted by a half-sister she never knew she had, and we watch her go back through her childhood and deal with her past, as the relationship between her and Seamus develops.
A delicious book from beginning to end, pun intended, be careful, you may get the urge to make bread, or eat it as you read.

Highly recommended!!!
