Sixty years later, in El Paso, Texas, Reba Adams is trying to file a feel-good Christmas piece for the local magazine. Reba is perpetually on the run from memories of a turbulent childhood, but sheâs been in El Paso long enough to get a full-time job and a fiancÃ©, Riki Chavez. Riki, an agent with the U.S. Border Patrol, finds comfort in strict rules and regulations, whereas Reba feels that lines are often blurred.
Rebaâs latest assignment has brought her to the shop of an elderly baker across town. The interview should take a few hours at most, but the owner of Elsieâs German Bakery is no easy subject. Reba finds herself returning to the bakery again and again, anxious to find the heart of the story. For Elsie, Rebaâs questions are a stinging reminder of darker times: her life in Germany during that last bleak year of WWII. And as Elsie, Reba, and Rikiâs lives become more intertwined, all are forced to confront the uncomfortable truths of the past and seek out the courage to forgive.
