Upon discovering a stray dog on her back porch, Mattie Rigsbee decides she has as much business keeping a dog as she has walking across Egypt -- which not so incidentally is the title of her favorite hymn -- and calls the dogcatcher. Little does she know that the dogcatcher will open her eyes to a whole world she never knew existed, a world that includes car theft, prison breaks, and a juvenile delinquent named Wesley who is as desperate for a family as she is. Armed with only her mouthwatering corn bread and a deep abiding faith in the Almighty, Mattie is determined to woo Wesley to the side of God and good Southern manners ..... if she can just manage to stay out of jail herself!
