Publisher's Description

A solitary artisan. A legacy of bread-baking. And one secret that could collapse her entire identity.

Liesl McNamara’s life can be described in one word: bread. From her earliest memory, her mother and grandmother passed down the mystery of baking and the importance of this deceptively simple food. And now, as the owner of Wild Rise bake house, Liesl spends every day up to her elbows in dough, nourishing and perfecting her craft.

But the simple life she has cultivated is becoming quite complicated. Her head baker brings his troubled grandson into the bakeshop as an apprentice. Her waitress submits Liesl’s recipes to a popular cable cooking show. And the man who delivers her flour—a single father with strange culinary habits—seems determined to win Liesl’s affection.

When Wild Rise is featured on television, her quiet existence appears a thing of the past. And then a phone call from a woman claiming to be her half-sister forces Liesl to confront long-hidden secrets in her family’s past. With her precious heritage crumbling around her, the baker must make a choice: allow herself to be buried in detachment and remorse, or take a leap of faith into a new life.

Filled with both spiritual and literal nourishment, Stones for Bread provides a feast for the senses from award-winning author Christa Parrish.

"A quietly beautiful tale about learning how to accept the past and how to let go of the parts that tie you down." —RT Book Reviews, 4.5 stars, TOP PICK!

    This review was written for Stones for Bread.
    This was a hard book to put down; a totally surprising "bread book". It even has numerous detailed recipes for making various breads from well-kept cultures used for making the beautiful and delicious flavors and aromas that come from freshly-baked bread.

    The story is not actually about just bread, but much more of the life of the young woman whose obsession in life has become her own bakery and what she produces there; it is of her life and journey from girlhood to womanhood, her emotional and spiritual adventures along the way, her attempts to keep private and self-contained thoughts and feelings, her slow awakening of her need for human love and compassion, her relationship with the fabulous personalities who surround her in her bakery, and most of all, her realization of how a living God has enhanced her life and surrounds her and enriches her with the Bread of Life.

    The truths illumined here are life-sustaining. The author's use of Scripture and assurance of God's love in Liesl's life are true to any person's needs for direction and comfort. This is a fabulously rich lesson on love and forgiveness, even redemption for thoughts and actions which may not seem forgivable; many beautiful lessons to be learned through the reading of this story.

    This reader had to go to her kitchen and make a loaf of bread when finished reading—though not from a culture that has been fed and cared for by generations before—still a lovely reward and reminder of how good it is to know a loving God who cares even about the crumbs we have with which to sustain ourselves, and to be thankful for what we are given.

    SUMMARY:

    Liesl McNamara loves bread. For as long as she can remember, bread has been a part of her life. After following her dream, she opens a bread shop named "Wild Rise". But soon her life is turned upside down by new employees, unexpected friendships and being featured on the Cooking Channel. Liesl must make choices that will change her life forever. In order to proceed forward, she must trust God and those around her. Is it possible?

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    This novel is beautifully written. Parrish mixes in historical context about bread, provides in- depth perspectives of her characters and creates a story that holds the reader captive. Liesl's passion for bread becomes evident as the reader moves through the story. For those who love to bake as well as read, they will delight in the recipes that are included in the book. Who knows_you might just be inspired! I look forward to reading more from Christa Parrish.

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5) pennies

    My Review:

    The random bread facts just threw me off. I love bits of information, and incorporated correctly, it can add to the story immensely. But in this case, it just made for an odd feel to the novel, and added to the overall depressing mood of the story. The writing style was different; direct and to the point; no eloquent turn of phrases or complicated explanations.

    That being said, the part history, part memoirs, made for a very interesting tale. It was intriguing because it was unlike anything I've ever read before, and it was unique and uncommon telling of something that almost feels as it can be true. Liesl felt rather distant, but that only added to the charm of the book. A wonderful addition to anyone's library.
