I read a book in which at least 2 people, a man & a woman, went back to late medieval Europe - Germany, I think. The woman landed on a road between villages & was picked up by a small town baker's son, also a baker, looking for a village where he could set up a baking business. They became business partners, she had coffee beans imported to go with his pastries, and things went so well, she decided to stay in that time period. I don't remember anything about the male time traveler & what he did.

Ring any bells?

    "Time-travelling woman becomes a successful baker in Germany" - one day, this will be an actual newspaper headline. – Paul D. Waite Aug 19 '13 at 9:10
  • HA! That is a good headline. I'm going to have to find a way to use that, either as a headline or maybe as a pick-up line someday! – KelB Aug 20 '13 at 21:21

You are looking for "The Skin Map" by Stephen R Lawhead. The woman's name is Wilhelmina, and the male is Kit Livingstone and I believe it's Prague rather than Germany, but other than that all the elements are there.
