Synopsis: The next Southern charmer from "a talented writer" (Jackson Free Press)

Weddings are big news in the Delta town of Second Creek, Mississippi. Especially when the wedding is that of the town's new mayor, the seventy-one­years-young Hale Dunbar, who is about to tie the knot with Gaylie Lyons, to whom he first lost his heart back in the 1940s.

Hale used to be the proprietor of the Piggly Wiggly, which closed a few years back. Unfortunately Gaylie's spoiled children are trying to shut down the wedding as well. They're putting up a stink about her move to this small Southern town, no matter how lovely the neighbors are. It falls to the town's matrons, the Nitwitts, to get the kids on board-and pave the way for more than one new beginning in Second Creek.
