1934, and Prohibition has finally been repealed. While liquor is legal again, moonshine isn't. Sheriff Buddy Norris needs a little luck when he goes into Briar Swamp to confront Cypress County's most notorious bootlegger. And it looks like the music has ended for Darling's favorite barbershop quartet, the Lucky Four Clovers-- just days before the Dixie Regional Barbershop Competition! Another unlucky break: a serious foul-up in Darling's telephone system. Fortunately the ladies of the local garden club aren't afraid of digging around!

Seventh in the Darling Dahlias series, and perhaps the last, according to the author. These sweet stories take place in Darling, Alabama during the Great Depression, and the Dahlias are members of the local garden club. Self sufficiency is terribly important and finds the Dalias planting many back garden crops to use and share. Pie Suppers boast their funds, and the recipe for many delightful entries like Shoofly, Green Tomato, Pecan, and Lemon Icebox are included.

Meanwhile, the local barbershop quartet, the Lucky Clovers are finalists this year's contest, shoo-ins to win, until the unfortunate demise of one of them. The local switchboard needs revisions, but the miserly silent partner who co-owns the exchange refuses to fund any improvements. Since the repeal of Prohibition moonshiners are barely getting by, and on top of everything else, Liz Lacy's former suitor, the unfortunate Grady, is mooning around her doorstep again.

An interesting peek at the times and expectations of those days.
