Pie Town

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


“Lynne Hinton deftly pens an uplifting tale of hope, faith, and community.”
—Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author of The Welcome Home Garden Club

“Hinton’s writing style is similar to Eudora Welty’s: easy, conversational, down-home.”
—Greensboro News & Record

Welcome to Pie Town! Bestselling author Lynne Hinton—who has delighted readers with her heartwarming tales of faith, food, and friendship—has cooked up a delectable treat for fans of Fannie Flagg, Whitney Otto, Kaye Gibbons, and Jan Karon’s Mitford books…as well as the dedicated readers of her own popular Hope Springs novels (Friendship Cake, Christmas Cake, et al). The first in a series centered around the inhabitants of a small New Mexico town once renowned for its homemade desserts, Pie Town is the touching and funny tale about the unexpected changes a sleepy little southwestern community undergoes following the arrival of a well-meaning but woefully unprepared priest and a young hitchhiker who looks like big trouble.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 25, 2011 – The residents of insular Pie Town, N.M., learn to expand their horizons in Hinton's slight latest (after Wedding Cake) when they are brought together in support of the sheriff's young grandson, Alex, stricken with spina bifida. Like many small towns, Pie Town famous for its baked treats does not welcome change, so when the new priest, Fr. George Morris, arrives in town with Trina, a hitchhiker he has picked up along the way, the locals are leery. However, Alex embraces them immediately, which is good enough for the townspeople, but their hospitality is soon put to the test when Trina is blamed for a tragedy. Hinton has an excellent sense of Southwestern rhythms and cadence, but not much else: her characters are flat and the indecisive plot takes forever to get to the developments readers see coming miles away. All crust, no tasty filling.
