The Little Italian Bakery review Å 104 Onvent under threat from the local mayor and his new development plan It is within the convent's dark corridors and behind its secret doors that Elettra discovers a connection to her mother's past She also falls in love again with friendship baking and adventure. Elettra and her mother Edda have a difficult relationship There s a lot Elettra doesn t know about her mother Edda won t share anything about her past or Elettra s father When Edda slips into a coma Elettra takes over the family bakery but she isn t as successful as her mother and she isn t able to keep it up To escape the despair she needs a change of scenery and decides to travel to Titan Island the place Edda apparently grew up Will Elettra find some answers thereElettra s search leads her to a dilapidated convent with three female inhabitants Widows are frowned upon on the island and the convent has offered two of them a safe place to stay Lea is running the place but she has trouble keeping it afloat The women aren t well liked on the island and have no means to make money Lea generously offers Elettra a place to stay though There s a connection between the convent and Edda Will Elettra finally find out about her mother s past and what s the effect of her stay in the convent on the other inhabitants Elettra can cook but can she bring than just good foodThe Little Italian Bakery is a beautiful emotional story about family secrets of the past and food I loved the gorgeous Titan Island and the convent it s an interesting setting The island is incredibly strange and not filled with kindness and happiness but Elettra does find what she needs there and discovering about her roots has a healing effect on her She s a little bit lost because her mother had too much influence over her life and it was interesting to watch how she discovers herself She finds her own connection with food instead of just her mother s and her kindhearted and curious nature help her and make things difficult at the same time a fascinating combination that leads to a terrific story Valentina Cebeni s descriptive writing style and relaxed pace perfectly suit The Little Italian Bakery Island life might seem peaceful but there s a lot going on beneath the surface I loved how Valentina Cebeni makes her story layered little things sometimes matter a lot and she clearly understands the complexity of the situation the convent is in and every emotion that comes with it The relationships between the women are strained and difficult but not hopeless and much can be gained through honesty and making sense of the past I was incredibly curious about Edda s secrets and the reason she kept Elettra in the dark and loved finding out The Little Italian Bakery is an intriguing story with plenty of unexpected twists and a fantastic heartwarming ending

The Little Italian Bakery review Å 104 The scent of freshly baked biscuits lemon and aniseed reminds Elettra of her mother's kitchen But her mother is in a coma and the family bakery is failing Elettra is distraught; she has many unanswered uestions about her mother's childhood Edda was a secretive w. Elettra s mother Edda is in a coma Elettra and her mother have had a very tenuous relationship as Elettra often felt her mother was pushing her to be a baker liker herself She also stopped Elettra from doing what she wanted which was journalism Elettra also struggles to comprehend why Edda is so secretive and closed up about her past All she knows is it has to do with an island When the bakery she has been running has to close Elettra takes off to this island to learn about her mother s past There she discovers a convent and a small community of women But what does it have it do with her motherFor me this was a rather strange read I never understood or connected with Elettra at all or really any of the women I was never convinced by the characters They never came alive I also found an island that treated women and in particular women as if they were shadows or non existent very hard to accept That wasn t the only issue Maybe it was the translation into English but on page 321 two characters suddenly disappear from the scene and I was left scratching my head wondering what I had missed I went back and reread No mention of the characters just gone This pulled me out of the story What happened to them only is explained about 30 pages later By then I didn t really careThere is mystery romance food and women working in community all the ingredients of what should have been a recipe for a captivating read But I found the story plodded along Although I was interested in some aspects of the story I felt I had to force myself to keep going Toward the end I started to skim just to get through it Recipes are included throughout the book Since I m not interested in baking I skipped over them Some people may enjoy this book but it was just an okay read for me I was glad when I finished it
