The Baker's Daughter by Sarah McCoy.. Okay, the first page hits orange on the hokey meter, but give an author a chance. Some nice footwork and clever plotting make up for early foibles in this non-debut novel, but to be honest, I sometimes like cupcakes with lots of frosting.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Sarah McCoy's The Baker's Daughter explores what happens when our loyalties (to country, cause, family, religion) clash with our intuition. A complex braiding of mystery, history, and personality, this novel is engaging and wonderful."

Sheri Reynolds

"The Baker's Daughter was a constant warm companion to me during cross-country travels, a novel I looked forward to returning to night after night. The rare book in which the modern-day story is as compelling as the wartime tale it contains, The Baker's Daughter offers a look at Nazi Germany through the lens of the immigration issues of our own time. El Paso, TX and Garmisch, Germany make for an unexpected harmony of flavors."
