Best-selling author Clyde Edgerton blends a comfy Southern setting and quirky characters into an unforgettable journey through a spirited senior citizen's world. Filled with the details of everyday life, this novel evokes the homespun wisdom and offbeat humor that have become Edgerton's trademark.

Meet Mattie Rigsby, 78, who keeps a clean house and bakes the best pound cake in Listre, North Carolina. Her children grown, she lives a comfortable and independent life. Her orderly days are about to be disrupted, however, by a stray. Unkempt and unloved, teenaged and delinquent, Wesley Benfield just might need a piece of her apple pie and a verse or two of Walking Across Egypt, her favorite hymn. As Mattie and Wesley come together, she will fill your heart with appreciation for a generation who still remembers that life is a lot better when it's filled with good food and good manners.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Amy Bonnett | 2/17/2014

    " Not terribly remarkable...not a page turner, but a simple book about life in the 50's through the eyes of a kind old woman who tried to help a delinquent boy. Easy, quick read. "

    " I very much enjoyed this book. I will read more by Clyde. I hope this book has a sequal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Cherie Davis | 2/6/2014

    " This was a delightful read. Mattie is a spunky woman who is not content to sit on a rocker in her declining years. She is just the sort of woman that I would love to go visit - especially if it is around dinner time. "

    " I cannot imagine a more appropriately titled book. It is disturbing how little dignity Edgerton grants to his quirky Southern characters. He needs to take a few pages out of Eudora Welty, Flannery O'Connor, or William Faulkner. "
