Read full description of the books The Girl Who Trod On A Loaf:The Girl Who Trod on a Loaf immerses us in the lives of two women in a small upstate New York town-a single mother of twin daughters who waits tables (despite her privileged background) and the elderly Danish composer who she brefriends. At the heart of their peculiar friendship is a Hans Christian Andersen tale (the subject of the composer's final opera) about a prideful girl who is damned for using a loaf of bread, intended as a gift for her parents, as a stepping stone.
