Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the fifth installment of Hinton's Hope Springs series (after Christmas Cake), the town of Hope Springs, N.C., is abuzz over a round of weddings among the series cast of friends. In this flowery confection, pastor Charlotte Stewart is living n New Mexico, but having trouble committing to her new beau; working as director of a shelter for battered women, she fears she may fall prey to the same pitfalls as her clients. Meanwhile, back in Hope Springs, nosy friend Beatrice Witherspoon is busying herself trying to reunite her married-but-separated friends Jessie and James Jenkins. Bea's plans fizzle when she discovers that her daughter is secretly engaged—and sending out invites. An unfortunately underserved plot line finds Louise Fisher, a lesbian, agreeing to marry the widower husband of the group's late member Margaret (who died in the last volume). Though at times brashly unsophisticated (old-fashioned recipes like clam dip and party mix fill space between chapters), Hinton's down-home charm carries the light, feel-good story with ease. (May)

    Bring on the cake!

    I happened to run across the book while shopping and since I'm an avid baker, thought it was a book of cake recipes. To my surprise, that was not the case. I read the back cover and brought it home. I got hooked. I couldn't put it down. It was an emotional rollercoaster (can't believe I just wrote that). It showed how fragile we can be, the depths of our pains and sorrows, but also how love conquers all. I saw one of my friends in each of these women and can't help but wonder if it's just me, or if there are little cliques like mine all around the world. LOL!

    Loved this book! Now I have to buy the four books that preceeded it.

    Sidenote: Loved the fact that part of the story takes place in New Mexico
