9780060084400: Bread Alone

What does a trophy wife do when, suddenly and rudely, she is told that her services are no longer required? Thirty-one-year-old Wyn loves her husband David very much ¿ but he no longer wants her.

Desperately unhappy and with no marketable skills other than a stint as a baker in France as a student, she moves from California to rainy Seattle, where her best friend lives, takes a job baking bread on the night shift and rents a temporary lodging. At first she¿s going through the motions of living her strange existence, clocking into the bakery at 11.30 each night, working till 7 and sleeping the day away. But gradually she makes friends and transforms her little house from a bleak rental to a home. And, as Wyn¿s new life grows, and baking bread becomes far more than just a job, it takes her back to the very things she loved before she¿d even met David. And along the way she rediscovers

that nothing stays the same: bread rises, pain fades and the future

beckons . . .

Book Description William Morrow Company, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 137 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
