In a quaint seaside resort, a charming bakery holds the key to another world. Marisa Rosso is struggling. Since the death of her beloved grandfather back home in Italy, she can’t seem to find a way out of her grief. So when her flatmate offers her one of his uncle’s rentals on a tiny and remote tidal island off the Cornish Coast, Marisa jumps at the opportunity. Perhaps some solitude is just what she needs to combat her homesickness and rediscover her equilibrium. But Mount Polbearne is a far cry from the sleepy little place she was imagining. Between her noisy Russian piano-teaching neighbour and the hustle and bustle of a busy community, Marisa finds solitude is not so easy to come by. Especially when she finds herself somehow involved with a tiny local bakery desperately in need of some new zest to save it.
