Sookie and Earle Poole have married off their last daughter and look forward to relaxing and maybe travelling. Her mother, Lenore Simmons Krackenberry is the one fly in the ointment. Sookie is taking care of her mothers business and her life is changed when she opens a letter sent to her mother from the Texas Board of Health. She finds out she is not the person she thought she was.
The book alternates between present day Alabama to the years just before and during WWII in Minnesota and Texas.
This was a fun book. Great story and wonderful women characters. Some interesting twists and turns as well, I really enjoyed it. It has a lot of great information on the WASP women who flew planes while the male pilots were overseas.
This would be a great book to give to all the women and girls in your life. It is uplifting and wonderful.

Four and a half stars! Very funny. Kind of a slow start, but really grew into a wonderful book. I love Fannie Flagg and this is one of her best. I love her depth of characters, her sense of humor and the wonderful stories she tells. This one was hard to put down and I was very sorry to have it end.

I was given a galley of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Oh, it's a happy day when there is a brand-new Fannie Flagg novel! There is something so comforting and soothing about diving into her version of small-town Alabama. Here she follows two families; the Simmonses of Point Clear, Alabama, in 2005 and the Jurdabralinskis of Pulaski, Wisconsin, during WWII. Flagg deftly weaves the stories of her families closer together as the novel progresses, but the real fun in a Flagg novel is not necessarily the plot yielding its secrets, but much more so the journey. The characters and the tiny Alabama town will completely charm you; how lovely it is to feed the birds in the morning, to know all of your neighbors, to sleep with the doors unlocked, and to hear that screen door banging shut. Even if, like me, you've never lived in a small town, you will instantly recognize and long for Flagg's version of "home." As an added bonus, this novel is completely hilarious!

"Review" by , "The kind of story that keeps readers turning pages in a fever...There are plot twists, adventure, heartbreak, and familial love in spades."
"Review" by , "Fannie flies high, and her fans will enjoy the ride....A charming story written with wit and empathy....just the right blend of history and fiction"
"Review" by , "Flagg's storytelling talent is on full display. Her trademark quirky characters are warm and realistic, and the narrative switches easily between the present and the past. Flagg’s fans won’t be disappointed in this one, and there's a lot to be said for giving tribute to the real-life WASPs....Great possibilities for nonfiction pairings abound for book clubs."
"Review" by , "Yet again, Flagg delivers a book full of heartwarming charm that is sure to provoke lighthearted laughter. A complex story told simply and honestly...another treat for Flagg fans."
"Review" by , "Fannie Flagg is a fantastic storyteller. She surprises the reader in every chapter with unexpected twists and turns. The only problem I had with this fascinating story is that it ended too soon. I can't wait for her next book."
