It's 1966, and Veronica DiGregorio wants Peg Merwood to teach her how to bake bread, using the special flair of The Prescott Method. The women meet regularly, break bread and take time to escape from their daily rituals. Peg, the wife of a college professor, is working hard to fit into her new university setting. Veronica, a mother of six, longs for a little quiet time. As they bake bread, they discover that the best ingredients for coping with the lives they have chosen are friendship, conversation and trust.
