At twenty-six, apprentice baker Mia West has her entire life planned out: a Craftsman cottage in Seattle, a job baking at The Butter Emporium, and her first love&#8212;her boyfriend, Ethan&#8212;by her side. But when Ethan declares he &#8220;needs some space,&#8221; Mia&#8217;s carefully planned future crumbles.

As she grapples with how to make a difference in a complicated world, Mia realizes she must choose between the life she thought she wanted and the life unfolding before her.
