What a beautiful book. Growing up in a small town, which I did, doesn't seem wonderful when it is happening. It is in looking back. I have lent this book to a few people and they all loved it. Again, her characters are just wonderful.

Riveting from beginning to end. A sweeping story that runs from 1946-2000. Elmwood Springs, Missouri grows from a post-World War 11 town surrounded by farmland to a 21st century enclave near the highway but never loses its sence of utopia. And it is full of some colorful people.

Wonderful! I'm ready to read another one by Fannie Flagg. You really become part of this small town and get to know the characters like they are your neighbors. Highly recommended for readers who like a "good story."

This is one of the best books I've ever read! It is about small town life in Southern Missouri in "the good old days." As someone who grew up in Southern Missouri this book really hit home. It's such a cozy, happy book, while I was reading it I was in the best mood!
