The Apple of My Pie
For the majority of her nineteen years, Della has been looking for the warmth, happiness, and wholesomeness of a certain four-letter word. Home. She hasn’t a clue what to expect, but she’s read enough books and seen all the movies. When she finds it, she’ll just know. Her latest stop and search has placed her in a charming little family-run town in Texas, where she stumbles upon a most delicious opportunity. In exchange for a detailed painting on her barn, Mrs. Mae Cross has agreed to teach young Della her most prized baking secrets and recipes, starting with the coveted apple pie. Maybe it’s the way she gets everyone smiling, or how she sings Elvis Presley’s music when she thinks rugged cowboy Courtland isn’t watching; the way she manages to get paint everywhere but on her pretty little hands, or her remarkable appetite for baked goods. Whatever the reason may be, Della is stirring up all kinds of four-lettered words on the Cross family farm. Four-lettered feelings, too.
