In this New York Times bestseller, two women in different eras face similar life-altering decisions, the politics of exclusion, the terrible choices we face in wartime, and the redemptive power of love. In 1945, Elsie Schmidt is a naive teenager, as eager for her first sip of champagne as she is for her first kiss. She and her family have been protected from the worst of the terror and desperation overtaking her country by a high-ranking Nazi who wishes to marry her. So when an escaped Jewish boy arrives on Elsie’s doorstep on Christmas Eve, Elsie understands that opening the door would put all she loves in danger. Sixty years later, in El Paso, Texas, Reba Adams is trying to file a feel-good Christmas piece for the local magazine, and she sits down with the owner of Elsie's German Bakery for what she expects will be an easy interview. But Reba finds herself returning to the bakery again and again, anxious to find the heart of the story—a story that resonates with her own turbulent past. For Elsie, Reba’s questions are a stinging reminder of that last bleak year of World War II. As the two women's lives become intertwined, both are forced to confront the uncomfortable truths of the past and seek out the courage to forgive.

Louise Johncox comes from a long line of bakers and confectioners. As a child she would sit on a flour tin at her father's side and eat whatever was fresh from the oven - a hot bread roll or a fluffy piece of sponge - and when her father, a master baker, retired, Louise decided it was time to capture his wisdom and baking expertise, writing down his recipes for the first time and preserving his magical legacy for her children. With a Foreword by Albert Roux, The Baker's Daughter weaves Louise's delightful childhood memories of life in her family tea shop with her father's delicious recipes for you to try at home, honed by over forty years of instinct and experience. From classic cream cakes and traditional buns, to celebration cakes, handcrafted chocolates and her father's signature cream meringues, these recipes come laden with the sights, smells and warmth of the tea room and bakehouse. Louise shares more stories about her family teashop in her ebook memoir A Life Shaped By Cakes: The Memoir of The Baker's Daughter. 'An affectionate memoir that will both entertain with stories from a bygone world of tea and cakes and inspire people to bake' Albert Roux, OBE, KFO

A masterpiece of light amusement from the remarkable D.E. Stevenson D.E. Stevenson's fine sense of characterisation and romance makes this novel a delight to read. It is a golden tale of ordinary, lovable people in a small town of Beilford. Sue, the Baker's daughter, on whom the story turns, has real personality. She is just about as far removed as can be from the usual sophisticated "heroine" of fiction - and far more attractive. D.E. Stevenson's quiet humour echoes throughout the book, following Sue's dealings with the townsfolk, tradesmen and the Admiral.

The Fallen Woman In The Nineteenth Century English Novel

A sympathetic view of the fallen women in Victorian England begins in the novel. First published in 1984, this book shows that the fallen woman in the nineteenth-century novel is, amongst other things, a direct response to the new society. Through the examination of Dickens, Gaskell, Collins, Moore, Trollope, Gissing and Hardy, it demonstrates that the fallen woman is the first in a long line of sympathetic creations which clash with many prevailing social attitudes, and especially with the supposedly accepted dichotomy of the ‘two women’. This book will be of interest to students of nineteenth-century literature and women in literature.

"A fantasia of a double tale skimming through the art capitals of Europe with double muses, double love pursuits, double Raphaels, even double authors, a tale dripping with idealized romantic settings, mystery, art, and a touch of magic, The Sidewalk Artist will keep readers wondering what is real and what is artifice--as fine paintings always do." --Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue While in Europe researching her next novel, twenty-something American Tulia Rose falls headlong into a romance with a handsome sidewalk artist. As he takes her on a tour of Europe's artistic treasures, she begins writing the story of the painter Raphael and his secret lover. Yet as her own affair grows deeper, Tulia's sidewalk artist grows more mysterious. Why does he seem so familiar? And what is his connection to the great Renaissance painter? Set in Paris and Italy, this lyrical first novel interweaves two parallel love stories, offering readers a unique view on the research and inspiration that goes into creating historical novels such as The Girl with the Pearl Earring and The Birth of Venus.

Lizzie is unaware of her parentage but her brother Joey is suspicious of the attention she receives from the Benders... Eventually he takes Lizzie to Merseyside to claim what is rightfully hers.
