What a truly wonderful end to such a great trilogy I will miss these characters deeply Judith Hendricks writes with such honesty that her novels feel cathartic to me She tackles real life tribulations with such a respect that you feel that you re in it with them and that you re enduring it right alongside them not rooting from the sidelines.

trouble at her bakery or a first shift employee calling in sick something annoying but mundane, fixable But the news she receives on a warm July morning is anything but mundane Or fixableMac, her ex husband, is dead He s not just in a different house with another woman, but actually, physically gone and the news ignites a firestorm of memories and regrets Ineligible for widowhood, Wyn is nonetheless shaken to her core as she discovers that the fact of divorce offers no immunity from grief As Mac s executor, she is now faced with sorting his possessions, selling his house and trying to help his daughter Skye deal with financial and legal aspects of her inheritance a task made difficult by Skye s grief, anger and resentmentIronically, just when Wyn needs support most, everyone she s closest to is otherwise occupied Her mother and stepfather have moved to Northern California, her best friend CM has finally married the love of her life and is commuting to New York, and her prot g Tyler is busy managing the bakery and dealing with her first serious love affair They re all sympathetic, but bewildered by her spiral into sadness After all, it s been three years since the divorceOnce again the bakery becomes her center as she places herself back in the bread rotation In the cool, gray light just before dawn, enveloped by the familiar smells of wheat and yeast and coffee, the hypnotic rhythms of Bach, the radiant warmth of the ovens, the borderline softens, becomes a permeable membrane letting her pass freely between past and present She might be Jean Marc s apprentice at the Boulangerie du Pont, washing bowls and pans, shaping clumsy beginner s loaves and learning to make levain Or working nights at the Queen Street Bakery in Seattle with the ever obnoxious Linda, teaching Tyler to bake, experimenting with different flours and techniques, testing, searching for the ultimate loaf of breadNow she will sift through her memories of Mac and their life together, eventually coming to terms with who he was and why, with Skye and her anger, and with Alex, who was once than a friend Soon she will re learn the lessons of bread that she first discovered at the Queen Street Bakery in Seattle that bread is a process slow, arduous, messy, mysterious and should be consumed with the eyes closed and the heart open Baker s Blues sat on the shelf,
