Publisher's Summary

"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.

Gut wrenching you poignant

What else do you call a story that has you twisted in every direction? I laughter and cried and held on to every word. Cut my kids off and husband shushed the heck out of everyone so I could finish this book! In other words I got pulled in so much so that I became vested in them. Never having had a friendship so seeped in history and love like these women it was both inspiring and fascinating. I loved this book! Three women full of character will take you on a journey with them that will touch you and inspire you. Recommend it absolutely!

Waste of a credit

I couldn't make it more than halfway through this book. The dialogue is poorly written and the level of cheesiness makes it downright difficult to listen to.
