Bookfanatic reviewed The Baker's Apprentice (Bread Alone, Bk 2) on
Helpful Score: 2
This is a sequel to Bread Alone so it helps to have read the first book. There are quirky small town characters and strong women. Overall I liked the book but it's not something I would read again. It's not as good as Isabel's Daughter which is my favorite Judith Hendricks' story. Baker's Apprentice dragged in the middle. I skipped several pages just to get past the boring section. The middle portion about Mac was definitely lacking something. It felt unfinished which is a shame because I think there was a lot of potential to have gone somewhere with it. On the plus side, there are some great mouthwatering recipes here. Might be worth getting the book just for those recipes.
I loved this book. This is the 2nd book- the first being "Bread Alone". Both books are fairly simple in storyline, but the storyline is real. It's a book about life. It gave me urges to go bake bread, and to go call my best friend. This is a must read!
This is actually the sequel to Bread Alone, but I haven't yet read the first novel, and still really enjoyed this one. A baker working in the Queen Anne district of Seattle, her friendships and boyfriend struggles - an easy, rainy day kind of read.
