Plot Synopsis

As a five-year-old, Angela Logan learned in her grandmother Nellie's kitchen in Teaneck, New Jersey how to make apple cake and discovered the joys of baking. Thirty-five years later, she is a single working mom with three teenage boys, Marcus, William, and Nicolas. She juggles various jobs and helps with employment counseling at the local mission. While thrilled to be in the family home where she learned to bake, the house is falling apart, with sections deemed uninhabitable by city inspectors after storm and flood damage. Plus, the car just decided not to start  and the boys all still need shoes, books and food. She's always made due until now, when her lender calls in the mortgage loan and puts her into foreclosure. She now has 10 days to come up with $4000 or she'll lose the house. She decides to bake 100 apple cakes and sell them at $40 each in order to save her home. Word of her bake sale ripples out through neighbors, friends, her church and soon the story soon spreads to the news, locally, nationally and internationally. Orders fly in from all over the world, taking her off guard by the overwhelming support. Although fiercely independent, she learns to depend on the kindness and love of others, particularly when the community and local businesses rally around to help her finish and ship the initial stack of orders.
