FRIENDSHIP CAKE (LYNNE HINTON)
HarperCollins|March 21, 2002|Trade Paperback|ISBN: 978-0-06-251731-9
When five women from the Hope Springs Community Church in North Carolina form a committee to create a church cookbook, they embark on a project much more meaningful than they could have ever imagined. As novice pastor Charlotte Stewart, no-nonsense Margaret Peele, maverick Louise Fisher, steadfast Jessie Jenkins, and busybody Beatrice Newgarden meet to share recipes, they begin to open their lives and hearts as well.
For the amount of arguments they get themselves into, they really do maintain a bond of friendship like no other. And opinionated, Louise Fisher takes on a sick friend dying from dementia and has a very difficult time coping with her death. But, not to worry, her friends are ever at her side.
This was a cute and easy read and apparently there are two other books that follow this one which I plan to pick up so I can complete the trilogy. Very light, enjoyable read.
