'A true feast for the senses' Jenny Ashcroft

'A bit of sunshine and romance and a whiff of ethereal mystery. What's not to like?' Trip Fiction

'A feel-good read' Hello


The scent of freshly baked biscuits, lemon and aniseed reminds Elettra of her mother's kitchen . . .

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

Elettra has many unanswered questions about Edda's childhood - 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, and eventually finds a way back to the past and herself. She also falls in love again: with friendship, baking and adventure.

**Features real recipes throughout including aniseed bread, rose- and honey-infused wine and spiced biscuits**
