Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 on Pie Town)

“Hinton has an excellent sense of Southwestern rhythms and cadence.” (Publishers Weekly on Pie Town)

“[A] feel-good story—one that will be enjoyed by readers of Jan Karon and Nicholas Sparks.” (Booklist on Pie Town)

“Reading Hinton’s light, quickly moving prose feels like sitting down to catch up with an old friend over coffee.” (New Mexico Magazine on Pie Town)

From the Back Cover

Life in Pie Town should be sweet. There are pies in the diner again, the church has been rebuilt, and single mother Trina Lockhart has found a home for herself and her baby daughter. Trina has even found love with Raymond Twinhorse, who has returned from Afghanistan after being injured and is trying to form a real family with her.

However, Pie Town now feels like a totally different place to Raymond. Perhaps it’s he who has changed, due to the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. But when an accident befalls Trina and Raymond is implicated in a crime, it will take the entire community of Pie Town to clear his name, find him help, and welcome him back into the fold.

Lynne Hinton in her new book, "Welcome Back to Pie Town" Book Two in the Pie Town series published by HarperCollins Publishers returns us to the life of Pie Town, New Mexico.

From the back cover: Life in Pie Town should be sweet. There are pies in the diner again, the church has been rebuilt, and single mother Trina Lockhart has found a home for herself and her baby daughter. Trina has even found love with Raymond Twinhorse, who has returned from Afghanistan after being injured and is trying to form a real family with her.

However, Pie Town now feels like a totally different place to Raymond. Perhaps it's he who has changed, due to the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. But when an accident befalls Trina and Raymond is implicated in a crime, it will take the entire community of Pie Town to clear his name, find him help, and welcome him back into the fold.

PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder affects a lot of our brave men and women who have served in our armed forces. I know a veteran who, when he hears a loud noise, instantly ducks and reaches for his weapon, which, of course, he no longer carries. It seems if someone loses a limb then we are very understanding but if someone suffers emotional trauma then we don't seem to be so quick to understand. Suppose a person is hit in the ankle severely and suffers what is known as a bone bruise? The skin bruise will heal in over a week but the bone bruise takes months to heal. The problem is no one can see it and, as the skin bruise is healed, we don't understand the pain from the bone bruise. The same is true for PTSD, it is emotional, internal, trauma that cannot be medicated away. What the person needs is understanding and lots and lots of love.

Lynne Hinton's Pie Town is Andy Griffith's Mayberry and Jan Karon's Mitford transported to the American Southwest, seasoned with the real life trials of folks trying to live in community while living their faith. I loved being Welcomed Back to Pie Town.

Format: Paperback
Catron County, New Mexico Sheriff Roger Benavidez fails to persuade the FBI Agent In Charge Williams they are invading the wrong house on a drug bust. There are no drugs inside only a single elderly female principal who has a heart attack.

In Pie Town, Afghan veteran Raymond Twinhorse angrily carries a gun, which frightens his live-in lover single mother Trina Lockhart. When he shoves her, hot water scalds her back. She grabs her infant Alexandria and locks herself and her baby in the bathroom until he leaves. Trina turns to Father George Morris who brought her to town when he arrived (see Pie Town) for help. He gets the sheriff's wife Malene who works at a clinic to provide first aid to the burns and informs Raymond's father Frank what happened. Meanwhile Deputy Danny White calls his boss to tell him that a robbery occurred at the Silver Spur in Datil and a gun was found in the nearby dumpster. The owner Gilbert Diaz accuses Raymond who acted badly yesterday of the theft. Roger cannot find Raymond while Williams begins a man hunt over $200 missing dollars.

This is an entertaining return to Pie Town as the caring locals rally around the troubled veteran they consider a hero while the Feds go on an expensive manhunt thwarted by the local residents. The well written storyline places a spotlight on PTSD that takes money to treat. Williams is a caricature of the arrogant Fed who should receive the Proxmire Golden Fleece Award for wasting government money as he is also the epitome of Putts Law of Success and Failure. Still fans will enjoy this engaging tale as it takes a loving village and professionals to help a wounded warrior.
