From the author of The School for German Brides, this captivating historical novel set in nineteenth-century and post??World War II Paris follows two fierce women of the same family, generations apart, who find that their futures lie in the four walls of a simple bakery in a tiny corner of Montmartre.

1870: The Prussians are at the city gates, intent to starve Paris into submission. Lisette Vigneau??headstrong, willful, and often ignored by her wealthy parents??awaits the outcome of the war from her parents' grand home in the Place Royale in the very heart of the city. When an excursion throws her into the path of a revolutionary National Guardsman, Théodore Fournier, her destiny is forever changed. She gives up her life of luxury to join in the fight for a Paris of the People. She opens a small bakery with the hopes of being a vital boon to the impoverished neighborhood in its hour of need. When the city falls into famine, and then rebellion, her resolve to give up the comforts of her past life is sorely tested.

1946: Nineteen-year-old Micheline Chartier is coping with the loss of her father and the disappearance of her mother during the war. In their absence, she is charged with the raising of her two younger sisters. At the hand of a well-meaning neighbor, Micheline finds herself enrolled in a prestigious baking academy with her entire life mapped out for her. Feeling trapped and desperately unequal to the task of raising two young girls, she becomes obsessed with finding her mother. Her classmate at the academy, Laurent Tanet, may be the only one capable of helping Micheline move on from the past and begin creating a future for herself.

Both women must grapple with loss, learn to accept love, and face impossible choices armed with little more than their courage and a belief that a bit of flour, yeast, sugar, and love can bring about a revolution of their own.… (lisätietoja)

Dual narratives, one set in 1870 and one in 1946, involving two women who use their baking skills to help keep the people of Monmartre, Paris alive during turbulent times. Lisette leaves her well-to-do family in 1870 after meeting National Guardsman Theodore, and joining forces with him to help fight for a Paris of the People. She uses her baking skills to help feed the people, despite the fact that supplies are hard to come by.

Micheline lives in the same area post-WWII. Her father has died and her mother has disappeared, and it is up to Micheline to care for her younger sisters. Once again, food supplies are limited, and Micheline has to provide a living for the family, so she also uses her baking talents to help her family and her community.

I loved the dual narratives. The book was a quick read, in part because it was so interesting. The book is considered historical fiction because some of the events within the stories are real. It held my attention throughout. ( )

Lovely and moving story of how a bakery stays in one loving family from the late 19th Century through the 20th. The bakery is more than a business, its a meaningful life-blood force that brings love, heart-break, nutrition and tests the dedication of its owners.

Good read.

Interesting time line. Don’t remember much about the Prussian invasion of France. I thought the recipes were amazingly fun to read. Post WWII Paris was also very interesting. ( )

A historical novel revolving around a family that owned a community bakery that alternates between two timelines, this book is great for those readers who appreciate historical events embedded into women's fiction. The characters are developed nicely and at a realistic pace, the baking parts are interesting (even to non-chefs), and the storylines are sculpted with care. Recipes also included. Recommended.

A good, solid historical fiction, told in two time frames, about a great grandmother and her great granddaughter who have a lot in common. Each has a love for family and people in their neighborhood. Takes a while to read, as you'll be sure not to miss a word. Very real characters and their lives, through wars. Easy to get lost in, sometimes frustrating at the switch as you wonder what happened. Some cliff hangers there. Excellent read!

I received this book free from the author, publisher and NetGalley book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
