Waiting on Wednesday – June 30

The Book of Peach

August 3, 2010 (Penguin Group, USA)

From Goodreads: For fans of Fannie Flagg – the acclaimed author of Heartbreak Cafe delivers a heartwarming, hilarious new novel.

Twenty-three years ago, beauty queen Peach Rondell left Mississippi and vowed never to return. Now she’s back, divorced and heartbroken, trying to figure out how her life went so terribly wrong. To escape her mama’s scrutinizing gaze, she spends her days in a little storefront diner called the Heartbreak Cafe, where, in the back booth, she scribbles away in her journal, waiting for enlightenment. Instead, Peach gets something even better: the unexpected friendship of an unlikely group of folks who show Peach that finding out where you’re going usually means embracing where you’re from.

  1. This book sounds like a pleasant read! The cafe has an interesting name too: Heartbreak Cafe. 🙂

    I also like the idea of Peach scribbling away in her journal. I wonder if there’ll be journal entries in the book?


  2. Great pick! This one sounds like a great summer read. I haven’t read anything by the author, but I may have to pick this up.


  3. I’m a little late on the move but glad I’m caught up now =) I thought about switching to wordpress a while ago. Do you like it?

    Nice wow choice this week, I’ll def have to check it out!


  4. I love the title, and the mention of Fannie Flagg sealed the deal. I’ll be looking for this one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention and stopping by my blog!
