The Baker's Secret

Stephen P. Kiernan

As dawn rises over a small town on the Normandy coast of France, Emmanuelle is making the bread that has sustained her fellow villagers in the dark days since the Germans invaded her country. In the years that her sleepy coastal village has suffered under the enemy, Emma has silently, stealthily fought back. Each day, she holds back flour meant for the occupying troops to make extra loaves for the hungry villagers. But her gift to the village is more than these few crusty loaves. Emma gives the people a taste of hope--the faith that one day the Allies will arrive to save them. A shimmering tale of courage and determination from the author of Hummingbird (2015)
