Abstract:

"Long before she was born, Dominika first appeared in a dream to her mother, so when she came to be, she was welcomed with eager expectation and much love. Though her arrival was auspicious, as the child of dissidents associated with the failed Prague Spring uprising, Dominika would live a life that was far from charmed. In a village on the outskirts of Prague, full of gossipy neighbors, state informants, and small-town prejudices, Dominika grows up a self-possessed child, whose openness and curiosity often lead her, and her dissident family, into trouble. Yet the love, pride, and quirky ingenuity that bind them together will guarantee their survival - and ultimately their happiness - through the best and worst of times. The Twelve Little Cakes is equal parts testimony to the struggles of a bygone era and a love letter to a joy-filled childhood that no external forces, however powerful or cruel, could dim."--Jacket.
