The Little Italian Bakery Paperback / softback


'A true feast for the senses' Jenny Ashcroft, author of Beneath a Burning SkyThe scent of freshly baked biscuits, lemon and aniseed reminds Elettra of her mother's kitchen.

But her mother is in a coma, and the family bakery is failing.

Elettra is distraught; she has many unanswered questions about her mother's childhood - Edda was a secretive woman.

The only clue is a family heirloom: a necklace inscribed with the name of an island. Elettra buys a one-way ticket to that island, just off the coast of Sardinia.

Once there, she discovers a community of women, each lost in their own way.

They live in a crumbling convent, under threat from the local mayor and his new development plan.

It is within the convent's dark corridors and behind its secret doors that Elettra discovers a connection to her mother's past.

She also falls in love again: with friendship, baking and adventure.
