Description



About the Book



When all else fails, turn to the divine taste of hummingbird cake.



Book Synopsis



Friends since kindergarten, Carrigan, Ella Rae, and Laine thought they'd been through everything together. But when cancer threatens to rip the trio apart, their world spins in a way they've never known before. Through it all, will they discover the secret to the divine taste of hummingbird cake--and to friendships that never end?

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 Southern novel brimming with wit and authenticity, Laine, Carrigan, Ella Rae first met on the playground when they were five years old. Now, as adults, they're still almost inseparable as they handle the outrageous curveballs that life sometimes throws--from devastating pain to absolute joy.

As the three friends navigate everything from a devastating medical diagnosis to the rocky path of marriage, their bond is tested. Through it all, you'll experience the essence and the joy of true friendship. And if you're lucky, you just may discover the secret to hummingbird cake along the way.

  • Women's fiction, focused on friendship, and set in the South
  • Full length, stand-alone novel
  • Includes discussion questions for book clubs



Review Quotes




"With wit and verve, Fletcher McHale portrays the joys and aches of modern Southern womanhood. [...] The Secret to Hummingbird Cake celebrates strong women and stronger ties. Its humor, poignancy, and a clash of sass will touch the heart."--CBA Reviews

4 stars. 'The beginning of McHale's novel is a bit slow, but it gains momentum quickly. The book is filled with love, friendship and learning to hold on even when life is hard; but it is also about letting go. Thick with Southern charm, readers will warm to the characters and wish they were friends with these wonderful women. A beautiful story to savor.'--RT Book Reviews
