This fourth book set in Aurora County, Mississippi, introduces the Cakes, a family of itinerant bakers who chaotically move from town to town--as Emma's father vaguely tells her, they come when needed and will stay "as long as it takes." Eight Cakes and multiple past characters (see, for example, Love, Ruby Lavender) create a large, quirky population, albeit one with few depths.

Emma Lane Cake has five brothers, four dogs, and a family that can't stay put. The Cake family travels from place to place, setting up bakeries in communities that need them. Then, just when Emma feels settled in with new friends . . . they move again.

Now the Cakes have come to Aurora County, and Emma has vowed that this time she is NOT going to get attached to ANYONE or ANYTHING. Why bother, if her father's only going to uproot her again?

But fate has different plans. And so does Ruby Lavender, who is going to show Emma Lane Cake a thing or two about making friendship last.
