Upside-Down Cakes by Dana

When Dana Field’s father died, leaving her all alone, she talked the new farmer in the area and his mother into letting her work on their farm. He needed the help, she needed to stay busy, and her cake baking didn’t fill enough of her time. However, many of the townspeople didn’t think it was a proper task for an unmarried woman. Then the vandalism started and escalated. Was it directed against the Polish family she worked for or her, and could it be one of the men who suddenly wanted to court her?

Come along for the journey, you just might find that love means more than you ever imagined.
