(From the publisher):
Sunya, a young, Indian woman, is the head baker and owner of Pastries, a warm and comfortable bakery in Seattle. Sunya loves baking and has transformed her fabulous cakes and tarts into delicious works of art. The success of her beloved bakery is put in jeopardy, however, when a chain bakery threatens to open up down the street from her. To add to her misery, Roger, her hip, Japanese boyfriend, has left her for a "perfect" Japanese girlfriend and her mother has just become engaged to a man Sunya detests. All of this misery pales in signigicance next to her main worry - she has lost her touch for baking.
When a new baker at Pastries tells Sunya about a baking school in Japan that helps people with their baking skills and helps them to center themselves spiritually through a form of Buddism, Sunya feels that this just might be the answer to her problems.
