Faced with surviving the fierce frontier winter alone on the Pennsylvania frontier in the late 1700s, Maggie is forced to hire herself out to the grim, bitter Mrs. McGrew. But Maggie’s a Callahan, and that means she possesses a precious family secret. Kept in the pouch she wears around her neck is spook yeast for making the finest bread ever baked in the valley surrounding Sinking Creek. And her aunt’s wise words, “Bring your troubles to the bread, Maggie,” help her begin to see that there’s more magic in the yeast and more strength within herself than Maggie ever dreamed.
