It is New Year's Eve 1924 and the fiery and volatile Charles McGill is devastated when the woman he loves announces her engagement to the mild-mannered Lucas Connelly, his friend and co-worker. Charles drowns his sorrow in drink and seduces Hilde Richter, the spinster daughter of a wealthy businessman.

When Hilde finds she is pregnant her desperate father offers to set up the penniless Charles with his own bakery if he will marry her. Charles readily agrees and, unknown to Hilde, the two men draw up a contract. It is the beginning of a bitter rivalry between Charles and Lucas, and their vengeful former employer, Miles Davenport. A rivalry that fractures families, tests love and loyalty, and comes at a cost that Charles could never have imagined.

The Breadwinners covers six tumultuous decades and leads us through the ruthless and cutthroat business dealings of the three families as they survive the great depression, the war years, the isolation of South Africa and the advent of company takeovers. If you like historical fiction set in exotic locations, and enjoy authors such as Barbara Taylor Bradford, Catherine Gaskin and Belva Plain then grab a copy of The Breadwinners

    I originally downloaded this as a sample but had to purchase it as soon as I got to the end.

    I've always loved a good multi-generational saga and read a lot of them back in the 70s and 80s. I'm glad I jumped back into the genre with The Breadwinners.

    The story follows three families with bakeries in South Africa. There is intense rivalry, some of it caused by love or lack thereof, and others by revenge. There are enough twists and backstabbing, love and lust, functional families and dysfunctional families to keep the story moving right along and the author wound up the storylines so that I could see how the families would continue on.

    It is New Year's Eve 1924 and the fiery and volatile Charles McGill is devastated when the woman he loves announces her engagement to the mild-mannered Lucas Connelly, his friend and co-worker. Charles drowns his sorrow in drink and seduces Hilde Richter, the spinster daughter of a wealthy businessman.



    When Hilde finds she is pregnant her desperate father offers to set up the penniless Charles with his own bakery if he will marry her. Charles readily agrees and, unknown to Hilde, the two men draw up a contract. It is the beginning of a bitter rivalry between Charles and Lucas, and their vengeful former employer, Miles Davenport. A rivalry that fractures families, tests love and loyalty, and comes at a cost that Charles could never have imagined.

    The Breadwinners covers six tumultuous decades and leads us through the ruthless and cutthroat business dealings of the three families as they survive the great depression, the war years, the isolation of South Africa and the advent of company takeovers.

    If you like historical fiction set in exotic locations, and enjoy authors such as Barbara Taylor Bradford, Catherine Gaskin and Belva Plain then grab a copy of The Breadwinners

    I originally downloaded this as a sample but had to purchase it as soon as I got to the end.

    I've always loved a good multi-generational saga and read a lot of them back in the 70s and 80s. I'm glad I jumped back into the genre with The Breadwinners.

    The story follows three families with bakeries in South Africa. There is intense rivalry, some of it caused by love or lack thereof, and others by revenge. There are enough twists and backstabbing, love and lust, functional families and dysfunctional families to keep the story moving right along and the author wound up the storylines so that I could see how the families would continue on.
