𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗘𝗥 𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗘𝗔𝗟 & 𝗚𝗜𝗩𝗘𝗔𝗪𝗔𝗬✨
I’m so excited to share this fantastic cover for 𝗔 𝗕𝗔𝗞𝗘𝗥𝗬 𝗜𝗡 𝗣𝗔𝗥𝗜𝗦 by @bookishaimie Aimie K. Runyan, releasing August 1, 2023.
1870: The Prussians are at the city gates, intent to starve Paris into submission. Lisette Vigneau awaits the outcome of the war from her parents’ home in the Place Royale in the heart of the city. When an excursion throws her into the path of a revolutionary National Guardsman, Théodore Fournier, her destiny is forever changed. She gives up her life of luxury to join in the fight for a Paris of the People. She opens a small bakery with the hopes of being a vital boon to the impoverished neighborhood in its hour of need. When the city falls into famine, and then rebellion, her resolve to give up the comforts of her past life is sorely tested.
1946: Nineteen-year-old Micheline Chartier is coping with the loss of her father and the disappearance of her mother during the war. In their absence, she is charged with the raising of her two younger sisters. At the hand of a well-meaning neighbor, she finds herself enrolled in a prestigious baking academy with her entire life mapped out for her. Feeling trapped and desperately unequal to the task of raising two young girls, she becomes obsessed with finding her mother. Her classmate at the academy, Laurent Tanet, may be the only one capable of helping her move on from the past and begin creating a future for herself.
Both women must grapple with loss, learn to accept love, and face impossible choices armed with little more than their courage and a belief that a bit of flour, yeast, sugar, and love can bring about a revolution of their own.
