Dolly Parton once said," If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one." In the bustling city of Atlanta, four very different ladies take her advice to heart and open a catering business that will cater to them—successful, independent women who put their families first.

But flouting the traditions and expectations of Southern society turns out to be more complicated than they ever anticipated. Even as the pressure of running a business bonds them together, the realities of managing real life threaten to tear the whole thing apart. As financial woes, personal hurts, and family troubles test the strength of their business and their friendship, they discover that sisterly support and lots of heartfelt prayer just might be the only way to survive.

Full of sass, grit, and good old-fashioned faith, How Dolly Parton Saved My Life is a hilarious and poignant look at friendship with a distinctly Southern flair.

About the Author:

CHARLOTTE CONNORS likes cheese, church, and Dolly Parton.

From Publishers Weekly:

Josephine Vann, a devoted wife, doting mother and former bank exec, starts a catering company in Connors's wholesomely humorous debut. After hiring Daisy, an eccentric pastry chef who lives by the rules Dolly Parton doles out in her songs, and Cate, an interior designer in a quarter-life crisis, Josephine meets her match in Ellie Howell-Routledge, the Cordon Bleu–trained daughter of a powerful Atlanta family who uses her deep pockets to push her way into partnership with the reluctant Josephine—never knowing that Josephine is harboring a secret that involves Ellie and her husband. On the way to becoming innovative businesswomen, they tangle with a health inspector, face financial ruin, unwittingly shock the sensibilities of delicate clients, worry about their children and bemoan lost loves. Most importantly, they bond, giving the girlfriends the opportunity to show off their feistiness and strength. Think: Steel Magnolias meets the Food Network. (July)
