Pie Town (Paperback)
"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.
“Hinton has an excellent sense of Southwestern rhythms and cadence.”
-Publishers Weekly on Pie Town
“A feel-good tale....Heartfelt.”
-Kirkus Reviews on Pie Town
“[A] feel-good story—one that will be enjoyed by readers of Jan Karon and Nicholas Sparks.”
-Booklist on Pie Town
“Reading Hinton’s light, quickly moving prose feels like sitting down to catch up with an old friend over coffee.”
-New Mexico Magazine on Pie Town
“Warm, poignant and moving....A lovely book.”
-The Pilot (Southern Pines, NC) on Pie Town
“Lynne Hinton deftly pens an uplifting tale of hope, faith, and community.”
