The New York Times-bestselling author of Little Beach Street Bakery and Christmas at the Cupcake Café returns with a delightful new novel-with recipes!-that is already an international bestseller and is perfect for fans of Jojo Moyes, Meg Donohue, and Sophie Kinsella.

For fans of Jojo Moyes and Elin Hilderbrand, an irresistible novel—moving and funny, soulful and sweet—about happiness, heartache, and hope. And recipes.

A thriving bakery. A lighthouse to call home. A handsome beekeeper. A pet puffin. These are the things that Polly Waterford can call her own. This is the beautiful life she leads on a tiny island off the southern coast of England.

But clouds are gathering on the horizon. A stranger threatens to ruin Polly’s business. Her beloved boyfriend seems to be leading a secret life. And the arrival of a newcomer—a bereft widow desperately searching for a fresh start—forces Polly to reconsider the choices she’s made, even as she tries to help her new friend through grief.

Unpredictable and unforgettable, this delightful novel will make you laugh, cry, and long for a lighthouse of your own. Recipes included.

700 g bread flour
1 sachet active dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp)
1 level tbsp.. salt

Sift the flour, then warm it slightly in the microwave (I do 600w for one minute). Add the yeast, salt, and sugar, then the water. Mix.
Knead on a floury surface for a few minutes until it’s a nice smooth ball.
Leave for 2 hours while you read the papers or go for a stroll.
Knead again for a few minutes.
Leave again for an hour while you take a nice relaxing bath.
Heat the oven to 450 degrees and grease a bread tin.
Leave in the oven for 30 minutes, or until it makes a hollow noise when tapped on the bottom.
Leave to cool as long as you can stand it, then devour.
