    Smile a glowing hearth

    Hello. Would you please explain the underlined part?
    I don't quite follow 'a glowing hearth' in the context.
    Does it mean "when the baker keeps his stoves fired all day, there's always a happy home to warm you, even on a hot summer day"?
    Thank you.

    ----from Le Road Trip by Vivian Swift
    The French famously have no word for home. And why should they? When they have boulangeries?
    The smell of baking bread is the very essence of hominess.
    And when the boulanger keeps his stoves fired all day long, there's always a glowing hearth to warm you, even on a Summer day.
