Little Beach Street Bakery, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Polly Waterford is recovering from a toxic relationship.

Unable to afford their flat, she has to move miles away from everyone, to a sleepy little seaside resort in Cornwall, where she lives alone above an abandoned shop.And so Polly takes out her frustrations on her favourite hobby: making bread.

But what was previously a weekend diversion suddenly becomes far more important as she pours her emotions into kneading and pounding the dough, and each loaf becomes better and better.

With nuts and seeds, olives and chorizo, with local honey (courtesy of local bee keeper, Huckle), and with reserves of determination and creativity Polly never knew she had, she bakes and bakes and bakes . . . And people start to hear about it. Sometimes, bread really is life . . . And Polly is about to reclaim hers.

Review by

This is a fun book to read. Polly's company goes bankrupt and her relationship fails. She moves to an island in Cornwell (in the middle of nowhere) and makes a home in a run down building. She makes friends and starts a bakery. The book is about Polly as she learns to live and love life again. Its a cute fun book and I loved the characters and the descriptions of the island and actually, I just loved everything about it! Will definitely read this author again!
