I received this book free through the publishers fiction guild in exchange for my honest review
I’m gonna be completely honest….I’ve tried getting into this book more than once…but for some reason i just cant…..the writing is good and I think at another time I would enjoy it but for some reason its just not grabbing me this time.
I’ve heard really good thigns about this book, so I do plan to try reading it again, and when I do I will revise this post when i do
“Why won’t you just tell me what’s in that cake?” I’d been trying to get Laine’s recipe for years. We all had.
When all else fails, turn to the divine taste of hummingbird cake.
In the South you always say “yes, ma’am” and “no, ma’am.” You know everybody’s business. Football is a lifestyle not a pastime. Food—especially dessert— is almost a religious experience. And you protect your friends as fiercely as you protect your family— even if the threat is something you cannot see.
In this spot-on Southern novel brimming with wit and authenticity, you’ll laugh alongside lifelong friends, navigate the sometimes rocky path of marriage, and roll through the outrageous curveballs that life sometimes throws . . . from devastating pain to absolute joy. And if you’re lucky, you just may discover the secret to hummingbird cake along the way.
