Union Street Bakery
February 18, 2013 - Amy Phelps
A young woman tries to make peace with her past while working at her parents' bakery in "The Union Street Bakery" by Mary Ellen Taylor. Daisy feels like she's starting over again after losing her job and her boyfriend. Having moved into the attic over her family's bakery, she begins working the business. But this reconnection means thinking a lot about her past and how she came to the bakery in the first place - as a young child, Daisy was left at the bakery by her mother whom she never saw again. The owners, the McCrae's took Daisy in and adopted her, raising her alongside their two daughters. Daisy feels accepted by her parents and sisters, but sometimes still feels a bit of distance. When a customer leaves Daisy a diary of a slave girl named Susie written in 1850, Daisy feels a calling to it and has dreams of Susie calling to her. As Daisy begins to look into Susie's past and the town's, she must also investigate her own past and what happened to her mother. This is an intriguing story of family with a bit of a "ghost" in the background that will keep pages turning. "The Union Street Bakery" is published by Berkley. It is $15 and 344 pages long.
