I bought this book on a whim because my childhood friend who lives in Springfield, Mo and I had just decided to meet annually, mid-way between our homes and have a piece of pie, someday. SOME DAYS THERE'S PIE: A NOVEL fit right into that theme . Although it's a pretty lightweight read, one can't help but like the two main characters. Rose is 80 and Ruth is 20. Rose is an old newspaper woman and Ruth is a too-young-married trying to make sense of it all. They are supportive of one another and complement one another.They are sweet women, but not necessarily sweet talkers. As a matter of fact Ruth is pretty tough and kind of talks out of the side of her mouth. The wyas in which they help one another out is very disarming. This is a first novel and out of the South. There are funny little Southern sayings and lore galore. It was worth my time to read it.
