The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale Review
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.
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- This book is sure to tug at your heartstrings. It is mixed with emotions so much so that you can easily have a stack of tissues right next to you for both the ups and downs. The author does a great job of mixing in the deep south with the bonding of friendships and the strength of the women created is both powerful and inspiring. I would recommend grabbing a cup of sweet tea and settling in for a real treat.
