Sometimes history begins to fade into…well…history. It is times like these that we need a story to rescue us, to teach us that it all mattered, that human strength, resilience and the refusal to give up hope could save even the smallest and most insignificant during a time of incredible cruelty and desperation. The Baker’s Secret is such a book.

The Baker’s Secret

by Stephen P. Kiernan


Emmanuelle is a young apprentice to the local baker. Her life is following its prescribed path, until the Nazis take over her village above Normandy Beach. Her mentor is everything a master baker should be, his only sin being that he is a Jew. Left alone, Emmanuelle takes it upon herself to nurture and save the people of her village, one loaf of bread at a time. This story will stay with you for a long time.

A tale beautifully, wisely, and masterfully told.” — Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife and Circling the Sun
