The first of 3 in a series that focus on a women's group in a church that form and become great support for the members. I felt like I knew these women well by the end of the series.The author writes a column in our newspaper and she writes well from a woman's view.

I loved the charecters in this book. You will feel like you want to spend more time with them when the book is finished. Delectable southern recipes such as "Twila's Chicken Pie" and more. The story line is easy to follow and you will be pulled in to this community with each page. This is a book not to be missed.

When five women from the Hope Springs Community Church form a committee to create a cookbook, they embark on a project more meaningful than they could ever have imagined. As novice pastor Charlotte Stewart, no-nonsense Margaret Peele, maverick Louise Fisher, steadfast Jessie Jenkins, and busy-body Beatrice Newgarden meet to share recipes, they begin to open their lives and hearts as well.
Exchanging such delectable Southern recipes as "Twila's Chicken Pie," "Earnstine's Corn Relish," and "Real Friendship Cake," these women offer nourishment for each other's souls, too, for each is struggling to make sense of her life-her past, her relationships, and her faith.

Mix well a batter of FRIED GREEN TOMATOES, STEEL MAGNOLIA'S, and Jan Karon's Mitford series and spike liberally with delicious Old South recipes - and you will have crated this delightful book!

This disconnected and episodic tale of a group of women coming together for a cookbook project just never gets off the ground, mostly because the characters are not well-defined.
