Ella Rae and Carrigan are the impulsive ones, but Laine has always been the sweet one who wanted her friends "to get baptized once a week, run a soup kitchen, volunteer at the local day care, and neuter dogs on the kitchen table." The trio have been besties in the little town of Bon Dieu Falls, Louisiana, ever since kindergarten. They often fight each other's battles and always keep their secrets well-guarded. In a little town like this, you can't be too careful!
The Secret to Hummingbird Cake by Celeste Fletcher McHale is about their changing friendship in the wake of an unexpected, life-changing crisis. It's about how secrets can't always be secret forever. It's about how no matter how much we wish to direct our own lives, God orders our steps, and sometimes He takes us places we don't want to go.
