When Camille Sugarbaker Honeycutt, the pretty but crazy 1951 Vidalia Onion Queen, dies suddenly, her twelve-year-old daughter CeeCee has barely a hope left in the world. To her rescue arrives Great Aunt Tootie in the most magnificent car CeeCee has ever seen, and she is whisked away to the storybook city of Savannah.
For some flowers, Aunt Tootie holds, are born to bloom only south of the Mason-Dixon line and soon, among the sweet scent of magnolias and the loving warmth of Tootie and her colourful collection of friends, it looks as though CeeCee has arrived in paradise. But when a darker side to the Southern dream threatens this delicate, newfound happiness, Aunt Tootie and her friends must rally to CeeCee's aid.
Warm yet heartbreaking, and generously spiced with humor, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt is the story of a girl who loses her mother but finds many others under a balmy Georgia sun.

'Packs the punch of Alice Walker's THE COLOUR PURPLE . . . Cecelia's absentee father sends her to live with rich Aunt Tootie in Savannah, where a coterie of crazy-charming, peachy Georgia gals combines to heal and protect her . . . An undertow of American Gothic beneath fabulous frilliness . . . A wonderful debut, but don't, if you're the weepy sort, read it on the train, as I did'
--Wendy Holden, Daily Mail
* Steel Magnolias meets The Help in this Southern debut novel sparkling with humour, heart and feminine wisdom
