Little Beach Street Bakery

Cover: 'Little Beach Street Bakery'

Staff Review: "Little Beach Street Bakery" by Jenny Colgan


In this unforgettable and heartwarming novel, readers meet Polly, a woman who's life has completely gone up in flames: her boyfriend and her are bankrupt, their business done, flat foreclosed on, and relationship on the rocks. Fleeing alone to a dilapidated flat in a tiny seaside town (the only thing she can afford), Polly slowly begins to heal and find a home, all the while mending the town itself one loaf of bread at a time. I couldn't have imagined a better ending to this perfect novel. The characters stayed true to the very end, with a strong woman who learned so much about herself during the struggles life threw at her. I fell in love with every bit of this novel, a highly recommended read that will leave you smiling long after the last page.
