Publisher's Summary

Debut author Mindy Friddle has been praised for the Southeastern Booksellers Association best-seller The Garden Angel. Filled with touching comic grace, the book is an examination of the layers of home and friendship.

Cutter, a hard-working woman who makes her living waiting tables and writing obits, is determined to sabotage the sale of her family's dilapidated ancestral home. Every time a potential buyer comes calling, she makes every effort to play down any possible charm that might be found within the crumbling walls.

Cutter's younger sister, meanwhile, is more concerned about her affair with a local - married - English professor. And when the professor's reclusive wife gathers up the courage to leave her own home and confront the Other Woman, she instead meets Cutter, and the two begin a quirky, comforting friendship.
