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."

I've loved all Fannie Flagg's books but I think this was my favorite. I hated for it to end.
