For fans of Like Water for Chocolate and Woman on Top comes a deliciously magical and mouth watering story, filled with wonder, discovery, and new beginnings. Thirty-one-year-old Wynter Morrison long ago gave up on finding a suitable career and drifted into the role of trophy wife to an ambitious advertising executive. After her husband decides that their marriage was a mistake Wyn leaves behind her posh, pampered life and ventures north to Seattle, spending aimless hours sipping coffee at a local bakery. As the sweet aromas of freshly-baked bread awaken memories of her apprenticeship at a French boulangerie, she feels the desire and ambition to bake bread once again. Soon, Wyn finds--in the kneading of the dough and the scent of yeast hanging in the air--an unexpected and wondrous healing power that helps her to rediscover that nothing stays the same. Inspiring and beautifully rendered, Bread Alone is an uplifting debut novel guaranteed to warm the heart.… (mais)

Wynter's baking journey begins in Toulouse with her mentor, Jean-

Despite David's later downfalls, the humor in his masked encounter was unexpected fun.

Intriguing bread-making and recipes will inspire many to join with the fluffy loaves.

Despite Wynter's over-extended and ultimately boring to readers futility
in hoping that David will totally reverse the new reality of his life and return to her,
the plot does move forward with her move to Seattle to accept a generous offer as a night baker
with a depressing bossy co worker.

Why she doesn't save her little fir tree by simply digging it up is a mystery.
Why there needs to be so much alcohol, puking, and hangovers is another mystery.
And why string Gary along when she knows he's not The One...?

David coming unannounced to her Mother's house after the wedding was a ridiculous plot twist. ( )

Good chick lit debut novel. An entertaining beach read. ( )

This was a lovely book! Told in the present tense, yet it works well. The story (about the break-up of a marriage) is puntuated with recipes for bread, and explanations of how bread is made. Somehow this doesn't disrupt the flow at all, but adds to it. Believable characters, very pleasant light read. ( )

After 7 years of marriage Wynter Morrison is told by her husband David that he feels unsure, conflicted, trapped - which is "David-speak" for "I'm dating a hot blonde and it's time for you to move out". Although Wyn knows in her heart that she has not been completely happy in their marriage either she is nonetheless stunned by David's emotional detachment. She spent her married life as a 'trophy-wife' helping David climb the corporate ladder in the cut-throat world of advertising. Her days were spent lunching with the ladies, serving on committees and tennis at the country club and now she finds herself without money or a job or the practical skills to pursue any kind of career. Wyn travels to Seattle to stay with her best friend, CM, as Wyn tries to find a new direction for her life. CM takes Wyn to her favorite bakery for breakfast every morning and the wonderful tastes and aromas of the freshly baked breads bring Wyn back to one of her first loves - creating recipes for mouthwatering loaves of bread. Wyn impulsively accepts a job at the bakery and begins a new life in Seattle but she continues to hope that David will see the error of his ways and come crawling back.

I definitely don't do this book justice by my review because it is so much more than a woman scorned trying to get over a broken heart. Wyn is a complex character who is not always loveable but I like her in spite of it. There is great backstory of a difficult relationship with her mother, a beloved father who died when Wyn was a teen, tentative steps towards new romantic relationships and loaves, and loaves of bread! Recipes are included for several breads, scones cakes and cookies. The book made me want to cut into a crusty loaf and slather it with butter.

My only complaint is that I bought enough bread,scones,muffins, etc for an army while reading this book. It is a very good read, fast. Thank goodness I finished it in one night, otherwise I would run out of freezer and cabinet space. ( )

Upside down I may take shape,
