"Daisy McCrae's life is in tatters. She has lost her job, broken up with her boyfriend, and been reduced to living in the attic above her family's store, the Union Street Bakery, while learning the business. Unfortunately, the bakery is in serious hardship. Making things worse is the constant feeling of not being a real McCrae since she was adopted as a child and has a less-than-perfect relationship with her two sisters. Then a long-standing elderly customer passes away, and for some reason bequeaths Daisy a journal dating back to the 1850s, written by a slave girl named Susie. Haunted by dreams of the young Susie, who beckons Daisy to "find her," she is compelled to look further into the past of the town and her family. What she finds are the answers she has longed for her entire life, and a chance to begin again with the courage and desire she thought she lost for good."--P. [4] of cover.
