This was a cute story. It was a little too heavy on the religion for my tastes, but the story of the friendships was worth reading. ( )

This is another one of those novels that are so popular about women’s friendships. Four women in Atlanta join together, hoping to build a catering business that will be successful, while allowing them to put their families first. The women are very different; a Junior League wife and mother, the daughter of a prominent African-American family, a single mother who is a renowned pastry chef, and a woman who just broke up with her boyfriend of eight years. This is one of the weaker novels of the type since some of the women never gain strong personalities and motivation during the story. However, one character, Daisy, the pastry chef, is a shining star. The story is worth reading just for Daisy’s part in it. It’s an enjoyable story, but nothing special. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0767926560, Paperback)

Dolly Parton once said," If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one." In the bustling city of Atlanta, four very different ladies take her advice to heart and open a catering business that will cater to them—successful, independent women who put their families first.

But flouting the traditions and expectations of Southern society turns out to be more complicated than they ever anticipated. Even as the pressure of running a business bonds them together, the realities of managing real life threaten to tear the whole thing apart. As financial woes, personal hurts, and family troubles test the strength of their business and their friendship, they discover that sisterly support and lots of heartfelt prayer just might be the only way to survive.

Full of sass, grit, and good old-fashioned faith, How Dolly Parton Saved My Life is a hilarious and poignant look at friendship with a distinctly Southern flair.
