“The perfect recipe for friendship, Christmas Cake is a delightful read for the holidays. This is a book to be shared, a story to be treasured.”
—Joan Medlicott, author of The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love
In a long-awaited sequel to her beloved national bestseller Friendship Cake, author Lynne Hinton returns to the town of Hope Springs with Christmas Cake, a heartwarming story that celebrates the close and lifelong bonds among women. Set in a small fictional Southern community as unforgettable as Jan Karon’s Mitford, Christmas Cake movingly addresses issues of life and death, faith and love—and good cooking!
This is a very light, relatively unimaginative novel that explores womens friendships and devotion to each other. There are scarcely any religious references, and no biblical quotations. The women characters are sort of fleshed out, but it is difficult to discern one from another. Margarets fight with cancer is treated with dignity and feeling, and the author does a good job studying the other friends reactions to her. They either want her to continue treatments and fight or just accept the inevitable with grace. The best bonus features of this book are the cake recipes that begin each chapter. As an inspirational book, this one falls short, and it is not recommended for the serious Christian reader. Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
