"Francis, whose former career in book editing finds an outlet in The Singular Kringle's grammar tip of the day, has produced a debut as light, sweet, and fluffy as Danish pastry dough." ~Library Journal
Filled with love, humor, and the scent of delectable puff pastry, Three Good Things tells the tale of two sisters who find their bond invaluable as they navigate marriage, heartache, poor grammar, and the surprising challenges that ultimately become the most fulfilling blessings.
Ellen McClarety, a recent divorcee, has opened a new bake shop in her small Midwestern town, hoping to turn her life around by dedicating herself to the traditional Danish pastry called kringle, but the past still haunts her -- sometimes by showing up on her doorstep. Her younger sister, Lanie, is a successful divorce attorney with a baby at home. But Lanie is beginning to feel that her perfect life is not as perfect as it seems. Both women long for the guidance of their mother, who died years ago, but left them with lasting memories of her love and a wonderful piece of advice: "At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened."
Ellen and Lanie are as close as two sisters can be, but then one begins keeping a secret that could change both their lives forever. . . Wearing her big Midwestern heart proudly on her sleeve, Wendy Francis skillfully illuminates the emotional lives of two devoted sisters as she tells a story destined to be shared with a mother, a sister, or a best friend after the last page is turned.
