In 1966, Kathleen Eaden, cookery writer and wife of a supermarket magnate, published The Art of Baking, her guide to nurturing a family by creating the most exquisite pastries, biscuits and cakes. Now, five amateur bakers are competing to become the New Mrs Eaden. There’s Jenny, facing an empty nest now her family has flown; Claire, who has sacrificed her dreams for her daughter; Mike, trying to parent his two kids after his wife’s death; Vicki, who has dropped everything to be at home with her baby boy; and Karen, perfect Karen, who knows what it’s like to have nothing and is determined her façade shouldn’t slip.
Die Britin Sarah Vaughan hat elf Jahre lang als Journalistin für den Guardian gearbeitet. Dies ist ihr erster Roman. Auf Deutsch kostet das Buch übrigens € 11,99, hier lohnt es sich mal wieder, wenn man in der Originalsprache lesen kann. “The powerful characters combined with the mouth-watering food descriptions make this a wonderful book, sweet and fun but also addressing many of the issues facing women both in modern life and throughout the ages.” (Leserin) (111 Rezensionen / 4,5 Sterne), 417 Seiten noch günstig?
