4 stars. 'The beginning of McHale’s novel is a bit slow, but it gains momentum quickly. The book is filled with love, friendship and learning to hold on even when life is hard; but it is also about letting go. Thick with Southern charm, readers will warm to the characters and wish they were friends with these wonderful women. A beautiful story to savor.' (RT Book Reviews
“With wit and verve, Fletcher McHale portrays the joys and aches of modern Southern womanhood. […] The Secret to Hummingbird Cake celebrates strong women and stronger ties. Its humor, poignancy, and a clash of sass will touch the heart.” (CBA Reviews
