now available in paperback and large print:
“Like a good movie focusing on a momentous occasion – in this case, D-Day – The Baker’s Secret makes the moment personal, particular, and vivid.
This novel transcends even a critical moment in history to suggest the inescapable human condition of ignorance of the future, and the absolute necessity of hope, courage, and unselfish sacrifice.”
―Sena Jeter Naslund, Ahab’s Wife and The Fountain of St. James Court
