Walking Across Egypt
"An unpretentious, finely-crafted novel that will linger with the readers like the last strains of a favorite hymn. It is more enjoyable than a pitcher full of sweet tea and one of Mattie's home-cooked dinners." THE ATLANTA JOURNAL & CONSTITUTION She had as much business keeping a stray dog as she had walking across Egypt--which not so incidentally is the title of her favorite hymn. She's Mattie Rigsbee, an independent, strong-minded senior citizen, who at 78, might be slowing down just a bit. When young, delinquent Wesley Benfield drops in on her life, he is even less likely a companion than the stray dog. But, of course, the dog never tasted her mouth-watering pound cake....Wise witty, down-home and real, WALKING ACROSS EGYPT is a book for everyone.

Enjoyable listening on CD while working and traveling.

Loved this book! At 78 Mattie thinks she should be slowing down, but then a stray dog wanders into the yard setting off a whole chain of events that make you wonder if her neighbors, her church ladies, her family and a runaway juvenile delinquent have to run as fast as they can just to keep up with her!
