Description

"Lynne Hinton deftly pens an uplifting tale of hope, faith, and community."
--Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author of The Welcome Home Garden Club

"Hinton's writing style is similar to Eudora Welty's: easy, conversational, down-home."
--Greensboro News & Record

Welcome to Pie Town! Bestselling author Lynne Hinton--who has delighted readers with her heartwarming tales of faith, food, and friendship--has cooked up a delectable treat for fans of Fannie Flagg, Whitney Otto, Kaye Gibbons, and Jan Karon's Mitford books...as well as the dedicated readers of her own popular Hope Springs novels (Friendship Cake, Christmas Cake, et al). The first in a series centered around the inhabitants of a small New Mexico town once renowned for its homemade desserts, Pie Town is the touching and funny tale about the unexpected changes a sleepy little southwestern community undergoes following the arrival of a well-meaning but woefully unprepared priest and a young hitchhiker who looks like big trouble.

Back cover copy

Pie Town, New Mexico, was once legendary for its extraordinary pies. But it's been a while since these delectable desserts graced the counter at the local diner. The townspeople--a hearty mix of Anglos, Hispanics, and Native Americans--like to think of themselves as family, especially when it comes to caring for Alex, a disabled little boy being raised by his grandparents. But, unforeseen by all, Pie Town's fortunes are about to take a major turn--due to the arrival of a new priest, Father George Morris, who seems woefully unprepared for his first assignment, and the young hitchhiker Trina, who some townsfolk just know is trouble. . . .
