Sisterhood, motherhood, marriage, baking, and books—these are a few of the things that make this delightful novel a recipe for getting through the tough stuff of life.
Filled with love, humor, and the scent of delectable puff pastry, Three Good Things tells the tale of two sisters who find their bond invaluable as they navigate marriage, heartache, poor grammar, and the surprising challenges that ultimately become the most fulfilling blessings.
Ellen McClarety, a
recent divorcée, has opened a new bake shop in her small Midwestern town,
hoping to turn her life around by dedicating herself to the traditional Danish
pastry called kringle. She is no longer saddled by her ne’er-do-well husband,
but the past still haunts her—sometimes by showing up on her doorstep. Her
younger sister, Lanie, is a successful divorce attorney with a baby at home.
But Lanie is beginning to feel that her perfect life is not as perfect as it
seems. Both women long for the guidance of their mother, who died years ago but
left them with lasting memories of her love and a wonderful piece of advice:
“At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that
Ellen and Lanie are
as close as two sisters can be, until one begins keeping a secret that could forever
change both their lives.
Wearing her big Midwestern heart proudly on
her sleeve, Wendy Francis skillfully illuminates the emotional lives of two
women with humor and compassion, weaving a story destined to be shared with a
friend, a mother, or a sister.
