Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.
Meet Juliet Cranbourne, local radio personality and owner of a whimsical kitchen gadget store, and her sister Evangeline, a fruit tree geneticist who works for Oregon State University.
When a rift due to their orphaned past affects their sisterhood, Juliet convinces Evangeline to come home for Christmas and choose headstones to honor grandparents Walt (a tenderhearted, good looking rancher) and Ruby (a blue-ribbon fiddler, fabulous cook, and
expert in the art of making family feel loved). As they cruise through Fireside in Ruby's Thunderbird, Juliet hopes that healing memories will somehow smooth rough roads ahead.
Does the tremendous love that marked Walt and Ruby's lives still have the power to renew
their sisterhood and help them find their place in the world?
This is a poignant fictional memoir, that may bring to mind your own memories of spending time with your grandparents! While Juliet and Evangeline had no say or understanding of what was happening to them, ultimately they would come to understand what a wonderful life they DID have, thanks to Walt and Ruby. The book grabs you at once, and brings you into their lives and buts you so solidly there, that when the book is over, you want to be back in Fireside with the girls and their memories! This is a lovely book to while away the afternoon with, just be prepared, you may want to do a LOT of cooking, after you finish it!
