I found "The Baker's Daughter" to be one of the most satisfying stories I have read in a very long time. Not only was the time line one I have studied for many years, but also the "cooking and baking" thread brought home to me so many memories. The desperate need to resolve our past "demons" resonates clearly to me.
And I must ask....did anyone else break into open and heartfelt sobs at the beginning of Chapter 48? I anticipated this scene but had become so intertwined with the characters that I "felt" this with such intensity.
