"The Baker's Secret" & The Anniversary of D-Day

We commemorate the 100th anniversary of D-Day with a new novel by Vermont author Stephen Kiernan. "The Baker's Secret" is set in a small Normandy village on the eve of D-Day, and tells the story of a village baker who finds a way to overcome the day-to-day tyranny of the Nazi occupiers. Rather than a story of armies and battles, it offers the French perspective, as they were trapped in their coastal communities during the assault, struggling to keep hope alive by caring for each other.   


  • Stephen P. Kiernan - a former journalist and author of "The Baker's Secret".  He is also the author of "The Curiosity" and "The Hummingbird" as well as two nonfiction books.
