Read full description of the books By Bread Alone:This is my second Sarah-Kate Lynch book. As with "Blessed are the Cheesemakers" she weaves a wonderful story around a food item. Certain foods don't take just skill and knowledge to make but they take passion, love, care. It truly makes a difference. I bake and I will only do so when I feel "the love" otherwise my baking turns out slightly off, tasting not quite so good, lacking depth. You might think I'm just sayig that but I assure you it is true.
By Bread Alone is about the art of breadmaking, about passion infusing life. Esme bakes an amazing sourdough from a starter she received years ago. When she bakes bread her family knows all is well. It's when she stops baking bread that they know life is topsy-turvy. The book begins with Esem not having touched dough for 33 days. Her husband is starting to feel panic, she's out of sorts and in a panic herself and isn't sure how or when she can bake again. Her world has been thrown off-kilter but we, as the reader, aren't sure by what. Lynch takes us on a past and present journey of Esme and her passion for bread and perhaps life. While in the present we are caught up to speed on what happened in her past to define her. With some colorful characters walking alongside of her in this journey we discover, along with Esme, that what we have in our present is what we've really wanted and what we really love.
While I loved this book it seemed to be a slow read for me. Parts of it seemed to drag out a bit and I'm not sure if that was due to my life circumstances or the story was a wee bit slow. Even though it took my longer than usual to get through it I enjoyed it immensely and have discovered with this second book of Lynch's that I really like her writing.
Read information about the authorSarah-Kate Lynch is quite a cranky journalist of several decades who prefers making things up to recording them accurately. This is not very good if you are a journalist, which may explain (a) the crankiness and (b) why she now writes novels.
She also writes two columns in the New Zealand Woman's Day, New Zealand's best-selling weekly magazine. One is about nothing and the other is about travel.
Sarah-Kate lives in a cliff top house on the wild west coast of New Zealand's North Island with a lovely dog called Ginger and a husband called Ted. Oh, hang on, no, that's not right. The dog is called Ted and the husband is Ginger.
