Lou Drofenik – The Confectioner’s Daughter – €14

Spanning a century, The Confectioner’s Daughter  starts in a village bakery in Malta and flows seamlessly into the Australian cities of Sydney and Melbourne. The Confectioner’s Daughter  reveals the intimate world of women, from the Maltese grandmother — the matriarch who builds a fortune from her baking — to her granddaughter who is desperate to escape the village culture which she feels is suffocating her.

The Confectioner’s Daughter  is a novel of love, lost innocence and struggle. It is a celebration of Maltese women’s lives, their resilience and their intense familial relationships.
