"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.

I have just read this remarkable book. Could not put it down so was glad it was a "Holiday break". I laughed, cried and did that all over again. Celeste has a new book coming out called The sweet smell of Magnolias and Memories. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Everyone who has "friends" need to read this book - was lovely and sad all in the same moment. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Took me one day to read it :-)
