Gossipers Contemplate the Shadows of a Small Town Over Coffee

Author Catherine Zebrowski utilizes the quirky dialogue of shopkeepers to reframe a true story in new novel "Through a Bakery Window"
WINCHENDON, Mass. - Oct. 25, 2021 - PRLog -- Catherine Zebrowski – author of the novels Sleeping Backwards, Maura, and poetry chapbooks Immigrant and Gone Stealin' – returns to the historical fiction genre with her new novel Through a Bakery Window (TouchPoint Press, October 20, 2021). In Through a Bakery Window, Zebrowski investigates a planned wedding between two wealthy families at the borders of Northern Worchester County, Massachusetts in January 1899, and the tragic events that followed.

Zebrowski frames Through a Bakery Window with the witty conversation of two shopkeepers, paying homage to the oral tradition of storytelling that has influenced much of her writing career. "As a young child I was surrounded by the oral tradition in the form of stories and songs that my mother from the County Galway, Ireland passed down," Zebrowski says. "I want to write stories that make readers feel captured in the frenzy of reading."

About the Book
Enthralled with a lavish wedding, the town gossips flourish until the specter of a long-deceased spirit intervenes. Based loosely on a true crime story from the turn of the nineteenth century in New England, this novel uncovers a simple truth of humanity-from the well-off to the working class, everyone falls victim to the transience of joy and the struggles of human nature.
