Karen Ganger, a wife, retired manager, avid cook, traveler, gardener, devoted writer and author, has completed her new book “The Prickleberry Pie Contest”: a gripping and honest book that intertwines the love of cooking and the pursuit of happiness. Read along as one couple turns a small town up-side-down and creates a place of understanding, wealth and faith.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Karen Ganger’s profound work delves into the ideas of personal hardship and acceptance.

When a tornado completely destroys Charley and Francine Simson\'s beloved bed and breakfast, they decide to move on.

Finding a forlorn small Southern town that had seen better days, the opportunity to start over becomes a reality. In a light bulb moment, the Simsons see that the entire community needs revitalization. With determination, Charley elicits help from the townsfolk to renovate the town square and rebuild the economy. Just as improvements materialize, preparing for the Prickleberry Pie Contest, tragedy strikes.

Contest excitement intensifies as Chefs James Beard and Julia Child, humorist Irma Bombeck, and country stars Minnie Pearl and Roy Clark come to help out.

As a lovable cast of characters provide tales of personal adversity and coping skills, they prove challenges can be met. Their heartwarming stories laced with humor will make readers want to stay in Welcome Home, Arkansas, plus keep the collection of their country style pie recipes dating back a century to the mid-1960s.

Readers who wish to experience this powerful work can purchase “The Prickleberry Pie Contest” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
