I loved reading this book. At first I was a bit skeptical because of the number of pages and the title. I thought "not a book that a guy would enjoy". But that could not be further from the truth, because the pages grabbed me and pulled me right into the story. I envisioned myself being right there, living the life of each character.
The story covers eight generations of residents of a small Midwestern town, from the time of the first settlers to the current time.
I loved the characters, but do admit to being a little confused from time to time on who was who, but I loved the looney aunt the most.
I don't give too many 5 star reviews, but this book deserves all of them, if not more.

Story of Swedish settlers in Missouri and the building/growth of the town they found and its population over several decades. Includes several characters that will be familiar to Fannie Flagg fans.
