9780425243282: A Piggly Wiggly Christmas (Piggly Wiggly Novels)

When an electrical fire devastates the beautiful old buildings in Second Creek, Mississippi's, historic town square just a week before Christmas, everything is thrown into chaos. It falls to the town's indefatigable army of matrons-the Nitwitts-to find a way to revive the holiday spirit and raise money to rebuild. It will take a miracle... but it's Christmas in Second Creek, where miracles are a way of life.

About the Author:

Robert Dalby is a graduate of the University of the South (Sewanee), and a lifelong patron of the Piggly Wiggly. He lives in Oxford, Mississippi.

From Booklist:

In Dalby’s fourth gentle, small-town saga set in the Deep South, Gaylie Girl Dunbar returns from her honeymoon, and proposes a caroling event staged on Second Creek’s gorgeous brick-and-lacework Square for her first civic project as the mayor’s wife. The widows group, the Nitwitts, although wealthy and senior enough not to be personally affected, are well aware that many in town are struggling financially, and they hope to encourage holiday tourism by inviting local church choirs to sing and by bussing in groups from other area churches to attend. But as Christmas nears, the ladies and their supporters face one setback after another, especially with their founder rapidly failing from Alzheimer’s, an engagement, and a premature birth generating tension among the members of the group. Dalby’s holiday-themed tale focuses on good deeds in troubled times and continues to draw readers who enjoy a strong sense of community as well as those who prefer their characters somewhat mellowed by age and experience. Suggest for Miss Read/Miss Julia fans. --Lynne Welch
