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.
I LOVEDLOVEDLOVED this book from beginning to end and am not sure I want to give it up! If you love good story and southern fiction, this is a must-read for you!
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.
