Mrs. Quinn's rise to fame / Olivia Ford.

Ford, Olivia, (author.).

In fifty-nine years of marriage, Jennifer Quinn has only kept two secrets from her husband, Bernard. One is that her love of baking-- and her quiet ambition to do something for herself-- has just won her a spot on the prime-time television show, Britain Bakes. The other she hopes will stay hidden forever. Whisked into an unfamiliar world of cameras and timed challenges, Jenny delights in a newfound independence. But that independence-- and the pressures of the competition-- starts to unearth memories buried decades ago. Chocolate teacakes remind her of a furtive errand involving a wedding ring; sugared doughnuts call up a stranger's kind act; a simple cottage loaf brings back the moment her life changed forever. As her baking star rises, Jenny's deepest secret threatens to shatter the very foundations of her marriage. By putting herself in the limelight, has Jenny created a recipe for disaster?
