Thanks to the inspiration of her dearly departed friend Arthur Truluv, she has begun to teach baking classes, sharing the secrets to her delicious classic Southern yellow cake, the perfect pinwheel cookies, and other sweet essentials.

Arthur Moses opens his home to Maddy the pregnant teen with whom he befriended on his daily trips to the gravesite of his wife Nola. It isn’t long before his neighbor Lucille Howard moves in to assist with Maddy. She is a lonely woman who tries to keep busy by giving cooking lessons. While Maddy is away at school for photography Lucille maintains the home which Arthur Moses left to Maddy when he passed.

Lucille develops an unexpected relationship with the family who currently live in her former home. She has experienced love and loss over the years but accepts an invitation to dinner by Jason and Abby Summers. They have a 10 year old son Lincoln and a dog Henry.

Again, the story has friendships forming between unlikely people. Lucille forms connections with many of the clients who attend her cooking classes. Several characters are introduced who will follow into the the next book, The Confession Club. Iris Winters becomes invaluable to Lucille when her health begins to fail. Lucille begins a rigid and meticulous training so that Iris might help continue her classes when she is unable.

The mix of characters provide a touching reminder that family are those with whom we choose to have around us. ( )

I loved this book - and I'll admit, it made me shed a tear or two! Lucille was a great character, sweet but very stubborn. I found her very relatable and realistic; really well developed.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing how all of the characters in the book interacted with and affected one another - it really brings home how small actions can set off chain reactions and make more of a difference than you think! And the female friendships and support in the book were just lovely to read.

I wish I could live in the little town of Mason, Missouri and take those baking classes - those desserts sound amazing!

I've never read Elizabeth Berg before, but I'll definitely be making a point to read more of her in the future; I thoroughly enjoy her world-building and characters. I didn't realize this book was a sequel to "The Story of Arthur Truluv. " I feel as though I may have enjoyed the mentions of the primary characters of that book more if I had read that book first, but this book was certainly still very enjoyable even as a standalone.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I missed the first book of this series, had the other two on my TBR shelf, so I jumped right in and read both. They were so appealing, a small town just dives in and helps each other, no matter the back drop story. The characters were wonderfully written and I really needed them due to what is going on in the world now. ( )

Lovely. Just lovely. I didn't realize this was a sequel, of sorts, to the Arthur Truluv story. Lots of characters to remember and get reacquainted with- but just a great little story!! ( )

Equally good as the first!
The continuity of the existing storyline is maintained in book #2 when the plot resumes in Mason a few years later.
As new characters are introduced, the author expertly weaves their backstories to interrelate with the characters already in place. Strong bonds are formed in the midst of upheaval as the new friends come together in this emotional drama.
This novel is about overcoming adversity and persevering.
While "The Story of Arthur Truluv" was an all around feel good novel, this one is more bittersweet.
I wonder what's in store for book #3! ( )

The ghost of my good dog, Alice,
sits at the foot of my ladder,
looking up, now and then touching
the bottom rung with her paw.
Even a spirit dog can't climb
an extension ladder, and so,
with my scraper, bucket, and brush,
I am up here alone, hanging on
with one hand in the autumn wind,
high over the earth that Alice
knew so well, every last inch,
and there she sits, whimpering
in just the way the chilly wind
whines under the tin of the roof---
sweet Alice, dear Alice, good Alice,
waiting for me to come down.

Splitting an Order by Ted Kooser
