When Martha files for divorce from her controlling and dismissive husband, Tony, she knows she’ll have to begin again. Tony persuaded her to abandon her dreams of chocolate and pastry fame, and to break a promise to her grandmother, to follow him and his dreams.
Martha’s heart pulls her back to her hometown in seaside Maine, to Gram, and to the bakery where Gram is still waiting for her to return. But before she can go home, Martha must learn who she really is, and her journey of discovery leads her south—from Baltimore and Tony’s betrayal, to the Gulf coast of Florida and the friends she’d made in culinary school, when her dreams had felt within her reach.
When she eventually returns to Baltimore, life offers her another chance at love. But Martha can’t believe in love again until she first believes in herself.
A Dream Worth Keepingis a story of friendship and loss, guilt and forgiveness. It takes readers on a journey of love and redemption—and reminds us that we can’t love anyone else until we love ourselves.
