9780060565756: The House of the Seven Sisters: A Novel of Food and Family

When Martha and her six sisters are abandoned by their father following their mother's untimely death, the family bakery becomes their only means of survival. Martha, the eldest, is forced to lead the household and take on the responsibilities of her missing father. Witnessed through Emma, Martha's daughter from a failed marriage, The House of the Seven Sisters follows the siblings as they mature and, eventually, leave the bakery in search of self-fulfillment and love.

Each sister, however, will return to the fold, heartbroken and disillusioned after her chosen man - the married mayor, the cowboy con man, the hunchbacked boy next door - fails to stand the test of time. Together they turn heartbreak into hard work, transforming the bakery into a bustling supermarket, but just when success seems near, turmoil erupts, threatening the happiness and contentment they'd long suffered to achieve.

A quirky and heartwarming story of family, fate, and food, The House of the Seven Sisters is the enchanting tale of seven mysterious women who, both independently and as a family, try to come to terms with the past and carve a path for the future.
