Alone, again, after the death of her fiancé, abstract artist Kiara Rafferty finds herself on Stinking Creek, Tennessee. She wants out of this hillbilly backwater, where hicks speak an unknown language masquerading as English. Isolated, if she doesn’t count the snakes and termites infesting her cabin, only a one-way ticket home to Manhattan would solve her problems.

Alone in a demanding crowd, Delia Mae McGuffrey lives for God, her husband, her family, and the congregation of her husband’s church. Stifled by rules, this pastor’s wife walks a fine line of perfection, trying to please them all. Now an atheist Yankee, who moved in across the road, needs her, too.

Two women. Two problems. Each holds the key to the other’s freedom.

With a unique voice, McClain creates colorful characters around an enjoyable plot line. She brings out the cultural difference between North and South in an entertaining manner, also accented by the contrast between an atheist and a pastor's wife. Two women from two very different worlds land next door to each other and both learn valuable life lessons. Truly enjoyed this book and loved the ending...brought me to tears. A copy of this book was provided for an honest review.

As someone in living in New York it was interesting to see the differences in culture and attitude, At first I had a hard time with some of the different southern wording, but once i understood it, it was a very fun read. To see the change and follow the change in the main character was funny and entertaining. A definate must read!!! A copy of the book was provided to me for an honest review and i am glad I got a chance to read something out of my usual genre, and it was worth every page.
