Ms Flagg's characters are tied together through the life of a radio show from a small Southern town. The book opens in the 40's and continues through present day. Little mysteries wander through and finally come to light.

What a cute and heartwarming book. I am not quite old enough to remember the time frame for this story. I do remember the quaintness of the little town I grew up in and how everyone knew everyone and if you misbehaved, your parents knew it before you got home. A wonderful read for a front porch swing.

A really nice read. Great characters and a wonderful time period (mostly in the 40's & 50's). A sweet, easy, enjoyable read.

I loved this book. It is a nostalgic snapshot of smalltown American life in the 20th century. The book moves through the decades from the 40s to the 90s. The characters, from the youngest to the oldest, are charming and lovable. She really brings the characters to life, with all their quirks and eccentricities. And there are a lot of characters, all connected by friendship or family ties in this wonderful small town. And even though she jumps around from person to person, it never gets confusing, and you are treated to the type of relationships forged by close friends and family. There are moments that will make you laugh out loud, and moments that will touch your heart. It is, at times, poignant but not overly sweet. Following the families and friends as they grow up and grow older through the years is a treat. She brings most of the characters back in the sequel to this book, "Can't Wait to Get to Heaven". I can hardly wait to read that one!
