{More about Stones for Bread}

A solitary artisan. A legacy of bread-baking. And one secret that could collapse her entire identity.

Liesl McNamara’s life can be described in one word: bread.  From her earliest memory, her mother and grandmother passed down the mystery of baking and the importance of this deceptively simple food. And now, as the owner of Wild Rise bake house, Liesl spends every day up to her elbows in dough, nourishing and perfecting her craft.

But the simple life she has cultivated is becoming quite complicated. Her head baker brings his troubled grandson into the bakeshop as an apprentice. Her waitress submits her recipes to a popular cable cooking show. And the man who delivers her flour – a single father with strange culinary habits – seems determined to win Liesl’s affection.

When Wild Rise is featured on television, her quiet existence appears a thing of the past. And then a phone call from a woman claiming to be her half-sister forces Liesl to confront long-hidden secrets in her family’s past. With her precious heritage crumbling around her, the baker must make a choice: allow herself to be buried in detachment and remorse, or take a leap of faith into a new life.

Reviews

  • ENAMORED WITH THIS AUTHOR!

    I have read all of Christa Parrish’s books I believe. They just kind of get under your skin. Not romance and not fast paced, but a true story of a life lived in all it’s adventure and angst. This one about bread and a baker who’s got flour running through her veins from her mother and grandmother.

    The journey that Liesl takes to self discovery is told through the present interwoven with flashbacks to the past. You learn her history as you see her working through it in real time in the story. Sometimes this style of writing annoys me if it’s not well done, but I’d say Parrish has mastered it in this book.

    The book does flow quite well even with the back and forth on the time periods. It is a Christian book and is good for those who have wandered from God and the Church and find they need to re-connect. Lots of sad times so keep the tissues handy. It is one to read about someone who seems lost and needs to open up to people, especially her father. I did like the outcome of the book and will give it a 4 star because of the characters, the feelings I felt for the characters, the history of bread and also the recipes.
    Oma’s crock with her sourdough in it, which must be fed, is also a very important part of the story of Liesl.

  • STONES FOR BREAD REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

    I love to bake and have been baking our own bread for many years now. I actually can’t remember the last time I bought bread! I loved this book. I loved the connecting of life to bread baking and how they are the same. Our main character finds herself through her bread. She is forced to make a choice between hiding in her bread shop and facing the life she can have if only she steps out in faith. Definitely a great read and you won’t want to miss the adorable little girl who steals her heart and helps her begin her journey.

  • FABULOUSLY WRITTEN

    This book is written in a very unique style. It has pits of history regarding bread, flashes back into the life of the main character, and then the story and recipes. I loved this book. The story was great but what kept me reading was the tidbits of history regarding bread. It was fascinating. The story was great as well though. A great lesson in letting God heal the wounds of the past and allowing yourself to be open to love and hurt once again. This is a fabulous book and one I will be keeping around to read again.

  • Stones for Bread is the type of contemporary women’s fiction that I like to read when I’m looking for a story to sink my “literary teeth” into. It is multi-layered, symbolic, and leaves me thinking after I have put the book down. The writing style is nearly poetic. I liked the imagery of the bread and the idea that generations of women were connected through the bread artistry. It made me think of my own grandmother while I read. If you enjoy something that is not run of the mill or formula fiction, you will enjoy this book.

  • A GREAT READ!

    Weaving family tradition with romance, along with delightfully developed characters, I quite enjoyed reading this most recent release from author Christa Parrish. She writes with a lyrical style, which takes a bit to get used to but once you embrace the style you will engage with the book well. The recipes were a welcome addition with each chapter and I have even tried a couple of them out, with great success! The book’s story line wove nicely throughout and I stayed up late reading this book, it was that pleasant of a read!

  • GOOD STORY

    The book contains ten recipes for different artisan breads. I have a glutton allergy and I admit I grieved that I would not be able to make the bread and enjoy the fruits of my labor. The recipes look absolutely delicious. It is also a book that gives the history of bread making with a cultural literacy that is comprehensive. Parrish knows bread. Parrish moves back and forth seamlessly between contemporary Liesl and Liesl’s childhood and coming of age. By the end of the book the reader knows Liesl well. I liked following the thread from Liesl’s traumatic childhood to her adulthood. The reader is allowed to observe Liesl’s struggle to become whole. I was left with a wonderful sense of how God moves and intervenes in our lives. I felt blessed by this book. This is a wonderful book.

  • STONES FOR BREAD BY CHRISTA PARRISH

    I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this book. I like for a book to wrap itself around me until I feel like I am a part of the story and I just didn’t feel that with this book. There are a lot of descriptions on bread and bread making all throughout the story. So much so that I feel like bread makers will be more likely to get the most out of the story. I also feel like there was a loose end. I like my books all tied up in neat little packages but I felt like there was a loose thread left hanging. If you are a romance junkie like I am, while you might like the sense of family this book evokes, you may not love the story as a whole quite as much. However, if you are a bread enthusiast I do recommend it as you will most likely love it because it has a lot of references to and instructions on bread and bread making and it also includes several recipes.

    First of all, I need to compliment the cover design of this book. It is simple and beautiful. When I saw it come across on the review list, I wanted to read it simply because of the cover.

    Now onto the book itself. It was a very enjoyable book to read. I could see myself in the character of Liesl, in her personality. I have a lot of character traits she did, but not the traumatic past. The story line is very real and I think everyone can find a little bit of themselves in Liesl. It touches on suicide, depression, and a whole host of other problems that many people can relate to or who know someone who struggles with these.

    Who knew that bread was such an artistic craft! I didn’t even realize what went into making these specialty breads. I am amazed with the resource this novel is in the art of bread making. I must admit I had to purchase some unique breads once I started reading this book, and munch on them while reading. The description of the bread shop is so distinct you can almost smell the breads Liesl is making! I love when a book can bring your senses fully into the story. Wow, Christa Parrish was able to not only tug at your heart through Liesl’s story but to awaken your senses! This book was fantastic at using allogory’s to bread and comparing the process to life.

  • A LITTLE BIT OF EVERYTHING

    Stones for Bread is different from any book I’ve ever read. I agreed to review it because my husband is a baker, and I thought it would be fun to learn more about bread making as an art form. I was fascinated by the 11 artisan bread recipes included in the book. They are so detailed and take so much time. I love trying new recipes and would love to try the ones in Stones for Bread because they all sound so delicious. I appreciate food more when it takes longer to prepare. I will have to plan a day when I have time to try one. Reading the recipes alone put a little bit of awe in me for those who make bread from scratch on a regular basis.

  • STONES FOR BREAD BY CHRISTA PARRISH

    In a world filled with throw-away novels, it is a joy to find that rare gem of a book that makes you want to breathe in and savor every word an author writes.

    That’s how I felt as I read Christa Parrish’s Stones For Bread – a book that, in essence, contains three stories beautifully woven into one.

    Stones For Bread is the story of Liesl McNamara – an artisan baker who finds herself on an increasingly spiritual journey as she attempts to resolve the events of her life, past and present. The book also takes us on a journey through the history of bread.

    Stones For Bread is one of those books where the author never misses a beat – where every word is perfectly placed – where so many passages offer insight into the human spirit.

    Consider this must-read literary fiction!

  • STONES FOR BREAD

    Christa Parrish’s latest book, Stones for Bread, is a fascinating book filled with so much more than a simple story line. I loved all the history about bread making and the process. Wow, some breads are very time consuming and have very little room for error. I loved reading through the recipes that are scattered throughout the story.

    For the most part I enjoyed this book, it did take me a little longer to get into the style of writing, much more lyrical then others from her. This story has so much going on in it, at first it seems like its all about bread but once you get deep into the story you see how much more there is to it. I enjoyed the mix of past and present and seeing how it all came together. This book does not disappoint.

  • A BIT LIKE WATCHING A TV SHOW

    Although the story is deep and moving, it’s highly entertaining. I loved the lighthearted banter between the characters. The book seemed a bit confusing at first, probably because it’s is nothing like those straightforward Amish romance books I’ve been reading. Reading Stones for Bread was a bit like watching a TV show; the scenes change and you’ve got to keep up. If you like Christian fiction with a twist, check this one out!

  • UNUSUAL BOOK THAT CAPTIVATES

    This was a really unusual, but enjoyable book. It’s all about bread, which doesn’t sound like it would be interesting, but it really is. The author tells the story of Liesl, a bread maker that owns a bakery, and her childhood and her life today. The book takes us back into Liesl’s childhood, into the history of bread, gives us recipes and shares Liesl’s life today.

    Liesl is a woman whose past still haunts her – in good ways and bad. Her Grandmother and Mother were also makers of breads. Her Grandmother, from Germany, holds bread in high regard and she and Liesl’s mother make every imaginable kind of bread and share this with Liesl. It’s the tie that binds her to her mother and grandmother.

  • Well, it was a bit confusing to begin with, which kept me from being pulled in right from the first chapter. There was something, though, that made me want to pick the book back up. Partially, I think, it is that in a lot of ways I really felt like I could identify with Liesl. She’s not drop-dead gorgeous, she’s most certainly an introvert, the guy who is interested in her is a good and solid blue-collar type of guy — none of those are the usual recipe for success in women’s fiction.

Another thing that was enjoyable to me was the use of bread and baking throughout the book was a neat thing. I like how it was infused throughout.

    Christa interweaves Liesl’s story remembering the past and moving on in the future in a fine seam at the bottom of the loaf. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction of the bakehouse staff and their unspoken love for each other that came through so vividly ~ being on time, doing what they know to do, being factual with each other, caring. I was totally emerged in the story, possibly because of my generational contact. There is more than bread making as Liesl comes to trusting ~ in her Lord and those He sends her at just the right time.

    This book is a raw-and-lyrical-at-the-same-time story, an exploration of living after you’ve been devastated and discovering the meaning of life.
    This book is Liesl’s story, and her faith is woven in like gold threads in a tapestry.

    I loved the way the theme of the Eucharist, Christ as the Bread of Life, the physical bread symbolizing Him, was displayed here. There were times when I stopped, went back to the passage, and read it again to let the words resonate.

    This novel is a literary journey worth taking.

  • A RICH AND BEAUTIFULLY LAYERED STORY

    Parrish’s multiple formats provide a narrative rhythm to her story that is as soothing as the act of kneading dough. The first-person perspective unfolds in exquisite prose, which manages to be both literary and literate. It’s a compelling story with themes of mental illness and adoption, as well as an education on the making and baking of bread. It certainly exposed for me a beauty in bread I never before fully appreciated. Indeed, there is one line toward the end about the transcendent meaning of bread that literally paused my breath. At times raw, always revealing, the characters are earthy and occasionally painfully human; deeply original yet universally relate-able. All told, I savored every page of this rich and beautifully layered novel about what it means to love and be loved.

  • STONES FOR BREAD BY CHRISTA PARRISH- A JOURNEY TO FIND GOD, SURVIVE LOSS AND CRAFT BREAD

    The characters in Stones for Bread are quirky, full of personality and oh so easy to love. Through their eyes I grew to love Liesl, despite her reluctance to become attached to people. (We learn why she’s this way as the story unfolds and we ache for her.) Seamus, the delivery man, and his daughter Cecelia are like shining stars in a dark night- patiently waiting to guide Liesl. Precious. The relationship between Xavier, the head baker, and his grandson Jude is beautiful, pure and simple. Tee, the brash cook, is delightfully rough around the edges. Under her crusty exterior is a person looking out for the wounded- a secret hero.

  • STONES FOR BREAD – REVEIWED

    “You can love a someone who is gone and a someone who is here, both together in time,” Tee says (p. 308)

    This statement is PACKED with significance!!! Truly, it sums up much, if not all, of the essence of this very fine story. Stones for Bread was a story that took me places that were uncomfortable in their familiarity. It made me consider my own heart and my response to the people that I love most in this world. It is a story that made me consider the consequences of my actions and reactions to situations over which I have no control but that affect my life in a profound way.

    Yes, this is a story about Liesl McMamara (a baker), her life story past and present, the people with whom she shares life, what she considers to be important and how that changes significantly when she realizes how much she needs to receive the love offered to her by her Heavenly Father. Her life is also impacted by the introduction of Seamus and his precious daughter Cecelia . But it is still SO MUCH MORE!!
    This is a story that took me on an unexpected journey to the heart of truth, and I thank God for introducing this into my heart for such a time as this!!
    Oh, and as an added bonus, the novel contains 11 Artisan Bread recipes!!

    Christa Parrish’s writing is beautiful! Her lyrical style has given her a powerful voice. I loved the way Stones For Bread was the perfect mix of spiritual journey, history, love story and cookbook. And the best part is that she weaves these together with the Truth of the gospel with themes of redemption and forgiveness. Parrish lends voice to her main character Liesl while sharing her backstory at the beginning of each chapter. This lends such depth to the journey we are allowed to travel with Liesl in this book. Parrish’s characters all lend a piece to the story that gives this novel appeal in ways so many other novels miss. And the artisan bread recipes are woven throughout the book. This one will take a prominent place right alongside my favorite cookbook collection!

  • DELICATELY BAKED STORY

    I’m so excited to be a part of the blog tour for Stones for Bread, I really enjoyed reading the book. Its different than the standard fiction novel, although it has twists and turns showing Liesl’s ups and downs. It delicately weaves the history of bread-making along with recipes, tips and techniques. Some references are subtle and some not so much. Liesls passion for her craft sings off the pages and even though the book was slow to start and on occasionally needed me to push through to keep reading, the story would pick up again as I was about to give up and I would find myself sucked right back into the tale

  • STONES FOR BREAD BY CHRISTA PARRISH

    I’ll be perfectly honest. When I first began to read “Stones for Bread” I was very tempted to read just enough to get by with a review because not only did it read a bit slower than I prefer but it also touched on emotional issues that I would rather not think too much about. Fortunately I persisted through to the very end and was happy that I did. Yes, the story moved very slowly but that is a good thing because this book is one to savor.

    This was a book I was so happy to receive and to review. I love baking, so much so that I was a part-time pastry chef for a coffee shop for several years. It was a joy to bake all the goodies for the customers, but the joy of baking goes back to when I was tall enough to reach the kitchen counter on a stool and learned from my Mother and Grandmother the art of making bread hands-on. That was the same way that the main character learned, from hr Mother and Grandmother. As I started reading I had high hopes for a good story. I was not disappointed. As Liesl thinks back to the past and looks at her present situation she see how she got where she is and learns to let go of old hurts and recover. This book was not written like other fiction books. It is much deeper and makes you really think as you go through it. I loved it!! As a baker I loved the notes from Liesl on bread making and the wonderful recipes. I think this is one book you would love!

  • STONES FOR BREAD

    Bread is the one constant in her life. Liesl McNamara closed down her heart while still a child and wasn’t going to let anyone else in. That was her protection as she knew it was the only way not to get hurt again.

    And there are nearly a dozen artisan bread recipes in this book. They’re not hiding at the end, but rather sprinkled throughout the book like cinnamon sugar on cookies.

    I really enjoyed Christa Parish’s approach to this novel, and look forward to reading more of her writings.

  • STONES FOR BREAD REVIEW

    Beside the engaging plot and back story, Christa Parrish has kneaded into this book a fascinating history of bread, from the Garden of Eden to the present day. How often does one give thought to the history of bread? Yet it has influenced every culture ever to walk this earth.

    An added bonus is the eleven artisan bread recipes peppered throughout the book. Anyone who enjoys baking bread will find these recipes worth the cost of the book.

    I love the characters. They are, like all of us, broken in some way or other. But they are beautiful in their brokenness. By that I mean that the image of God is seen in them, whether or not they are believers. All the characters are believable and realistic. I grew quite attached to them and now that I’ve finished the book, I miss them.

  • PERFECT TIMING

    Stones for Bread is an delightful tale one that can only be compared to a tearful, releasing conversation you have with a friend. Sharing of all the things in your life that are bringing stress as twinges of pain sting your face with salty tears. Then just as you feel you can’t take anymore your child hugs you suddenly and for no reason with an angelic voice looks into your eyes and says “I love you mommy.“

    That is the releasing grace of Stones for Bread. Painted with beautiful words like a winter horizon – trees dark and dusted with pure white snow reaching towards the moonlight. Yet, it’s not just a novel. It’s more than that. It’s captivating words, sweet characters, and interesting history lessons is worth the couch time with your favorite cup of tea.

    I admire bread bakers – it is absolutely an art form in itself. And in her new book, “Stones For Bread,” author Christa Parrish reveals that quiet and unique art to her readers in a delicately risen and profoundly delicious story of love, family secrets and bread.

    Parrish pulls her readers in with a wonderfully written tale, and then teases their palates with several sinfully-appetizing recipes for bread. I thoroughly enjoyed immersing myself into the novel and highly recommend it!

Liesl has people in her life that cause family secrets to unravel and they force Liesl to take a hard look are herself. There are so many people hurting in the world and a lot of the hurting is unseen to others and the sense of community that comes alive in this book is inspiring.

    I really enjoyed this book… both the story and the wonderful recipes and bread lore!

    The style of writing was far more literary than I am used to in this genre, but the author made this work beautifully. The main character alternates in time between the present, and the past that shaped her rather solitary current life. Current events in her bakery work to bring Liesel out of her solitude, and heal the wounds of the past.

  • STONES FOR BREAD

    I thought this was an interesting book. The characters and plot were well written and unique. My attention was held from the beginning. The writing style takes a little getting used to. It may seem choppy at first. This is a Christian contemporary fiction book. The writing has a lyric literary feel to it. I loved the characters. Liesl McNamara runs the bakery Wild Rise. She learned from her mother and grandmother. There were several detailed bread recipes in the book for the readers. The book alternates between her childhood and present day. There were other great characters too. A single father with a cute little girl starts getting closer to Liesl and others at the bakery. The end was satisfying. Highly Recommended.

  • STONES FOR BREAD REVIEW

    I loved the book “Stones for Bread” by Christa Parrish. This book really had all the makings of a great novel – not just in the Christian genre, but across the board. At first I thought it was going to be hard to get into because there is a lot of detail about bread making in this book. But it wasn’t long before I was sucked in. The way Parrish writes really made me get lost in the book. Liesl McNamara, the main character of the book, is obsessed with bread. Her whole life revolves around bread. But you can see her evolving throughout the book. She takes in friends, new coworkers, perhaps a man, tries new things, and even finds her faith again through a long series of events. I just love the way this book was written, and it makes me want to check out Christa Parrish’s other works.

  • BOOK REVIEW: STONES FOR BREAD

    I loved the way Parrish tells Liesl’s story. She begins her chapters with glimpses of Liesl’s childhood and then interspersed is a mystical tale of bread containing facts, superstitions and spiritual truths. And for those who are more adventurous and patient than myself, there are recipes for sourdough starter and breads. But it is the characters that really make the story for me — Xavier a retired baker and his grandson Jude, Tee the cantankerous Ukranian cook, the prodding kitchen helper/waitress Gretchen, and the larger-than-life Seamus and his daughter Cecelia, the little girl abandoned by her mother who makes the biggest connection with Liesl.

    Liesl McNamara is the main character in the book, and she lives, eats, and sleeps bread. She owns her own bakery and lives in an apartment upstairs. It seems to her that her whole life has been built up around the making of bread. She watched her grandmother and mother make bread.

  • I loved how the story moved back and forth in time, from her memories as a child of happy times and very dark times to her life now and how her life has been shaped by earlier events. The other quirky characters that work for her really added to the story in showing her things she needs to see and pulling her out of her shell. I couldn’t help but smile at the little girl’s antics and how great her father was with her. The poetic quality to the writing along with the reflections on Jesus being the Bread of Life give the story almost a devotional and literary feel sometimes. I highly recommend it!

  • First of all, this book made me want to eat bread… lots of bread. Second, this book made me want to make lots of bread (probably to eat). The story behind this book was well written and enjoyable. I really longed to hear more about several of the characters in the story as they were so interesting. There recipes in the book are a fun addition to the wonderful story. Parrish is a great story teller and the way she describes everything in the book is almost terrific. Like I’ve said, this book is much more than a book about a bread maker, but I promise you will want to eat lots of bread while reading it!

    Wow. Christa Parrish is a wordsmith extraordinaire and this was a compelling story of a woman, Liesl Mac Namara, who has to come to terms with her mother’s untimely death when Liesl was a teenager. Liesl hides behind her work: running an increasingly popular artisan bakery to cope with her soul wounds but when her bakery receives national attention, she cannot hide for long. A great read by a master author.

    Christa Parrish always gets to the heart of the matter. Usually my heart when I’m reading one of her books. Stones for Bread takes you back to how Liesl McNamara get her love for baking. It delves into the heart of soul of what makes her tick. Christa has a way with words that is like an artist taking brush to paper or a sculptor shaping a blob of clay into an amazing statue. She uses her words to create masterpieces of art that leave you imprinted long after you close the book.

    A book about baking and bread? I knew I had to read it since I love the art of baking. This was my first novel by Christa Parrish, and I enjoyed it. The love of baking was passed down to Liesl from her mother and grandmother. Bread is pretty much her life. Liesl is a little difficult to figure out, but as the book progresses you learn more and more about her and what made her the woman she is. I really enjoyed watching Liesl open up to Seamus and slowly let go of life circumstances that had her bound for a long time.

  • COMPLICATED STORY AND CHARACTERS

    “Stones for Bread” is not a light and fluffy read (pun intended), but one much like the sourdough our heroine makes and is known for: thick and more than a bit sour. Leisel is a complicated character and you have to read much of the book before the pieces of her story start to unravel to get a glimpse into who this woman is. I loved how Seamus disrupted her normal routine and nothing was the same. I thought the crafting of these two character’s relationship was absolutely beautiful. It wasn’t rushed or hurried, because that isn’t what Leisel would be able to handle. As the reader, you get to watch her slowly unfurl and rise from the ashes that have too long defined her.

    First of all the cover of this book is wonderful! I was looking forward to this book because who doesn’t love bread? The story starts out in a unique way, taking the reader back to life in a child’s mind. From there the story moves forward in the life of Liesl and her Wild Rice bake house. I loved how the recipes are throughout the entire book and that there is a list on where to find them at the end! The writing in this book is very different and unique. Everything is short and to the point. Multiple sentences create one small thought or process. I like it because it is different. The only thing is the overall plot and story line didn’t captivate me. I really wish I could say that it did, but it honestly did not.

    Liesl is a girl who did not have the easy childhood and at the beginning of each chapter the reader is given a chronological glimpse into the things that she had to overcome to become a successful woman who owns her own bakery. Liesl has some employees at the bakery who each provide extra plotlines and interesting things to the backend of the bakery.

    I fell in love with Liesl’s story and wanted to hear more about her backstory and how she became the woman she was and find out her reasoning for being so hesitant. I also would love a book that centered around Jude from the bakery to see where he is now and how things are going for him.

    Overall I loved the story and would love to read the next chapter of Liesl’s story.

She intuitively knows how long to nurture the starter, not rushing the process, she kneads out the hollow places at the right times, and lets the story proof until it’s time to turn up the heat….
