The Confectioner’s Tale will immerse you in mystery, passion for creating desserts and a turn-of-the-century love affair.

Recommended readers:

  • If you like stories uncovering the past
  • If you’re a fan of generational, historical sagas
  • If you enjoy a turn of the century, changing of times family drama
  • If you liked Lilac Girls, Everyone Brave is Forgiven and more historical drama

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 5/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4.5/5 overall


In a dual plotline that ties together seamlessly, Laura Madeleine weaves together the same story 80 years apart. In the 1980s a graduate university student discovers a photograph with a note “Forgive Me,” from her beloved grandfather’s things. At the same time a weasely biographer tries to tarnish her grandfather’s memory. Putting her graduate research aside, the girl investigates what happened 80 years ago at the famous Patisserie Clermont, a pastry shop in Paris, and you’ll become immersed in the pastry shop and the passion its people have for creating desserts. You’ll love both storylines and how they dramatically come together. A must-read for anyone who enjoys history, fiction and drama.
