Avalon is a small town in America where people are struggling with life’s everyday challenges.
As Darien Gee introduces us to her characters it seems that many of the women of the town are bruised souls trying to come to terms with painful memories. Hannah has had to give up being a successful cellist and she suspects her husband has left her. Madeline is grieving after the death of her husband and the estrangement of her step son and Julia has shut herself away from life after the death of her young son many years ago.
When Julia and her five-year old daughter Gracie find a homemade loaf of Amish Friendship bread and a bag of starter to make another one, it ends up having an impact on all these women and many others in the small community. When a neighbouring town is flooded, baking the friendship bread brings the whole town together.
This delicious book reminds us that everyone has a responsibility to make the world a better place.
