Did you ever pick up a book and think it was going to read one way and then find out after you read it that it turns out to be something quite different? Well, that is exactly what happened when I checked out The Union Street Bakery. Looking at the cover, it seems that this book will be a sweet little story set in a quaint small town. But no, no, no…this is quite a bit more than that!
Daisy McCrae is only 3 years old when she is abandoned by her mother at an Alexandria, Virginia bakery. Luckily, the owners of the bakery are a kind couple with two girls of their own, and they decide to adopt Daisy. They give Daisy a good life, but something was always missing in Daisy’s heart. Who is her birth mother? Why did she just leave her? No one seems to have any answers, and Daisy struggles with this growing up and even now in her early thirties, she has a difficult time with relationships and commitments.
After losing her high-powered investment banking job, Daisy is forced to move back home. Not only does she have no where else to go, but her family’s bakery is on the brink of financial ruin. Daisy’s plan is to go in and pull them out of their mess, and then return to her real life.
But life may have its own plan…
