She has as much business keeping a stray dog as she would 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 seventy-eight, might be slowing down just a bit. When teenage 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 and witty, down-home and real, Walking Across Egypt is a book for everyone.

Loved this book! At 78 Mattie thinks she should be slowing down, but when a stray dog wanders into the yard it sets off a whole chain of events that makes 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!
