Print
"Spanning decades, generations, and America in the 1940s and today, The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion is a fun-loving mystery about an Alabama woman today, and five women who in 1943 worked in a Phillips 66 gas station, during the WWII years. Like Fannie Flagg's classic Fried Green Tomatoes, this is a riveting, fun story of two families, set in present day America and during World War II, filled to the brim with Flagg's trademark funny voice and storytelling magic"--

A wonderful story of past and present. Historical fiction woven masterfully within this novel. Women were a very important part of World War II in many aspects. Ms. Flagg brings forth a little known fact about women pilots and their part of the war effort. A very worthwhile read. Enjoy!

Wonderful read that alternates between the protagonist's present day and the past of her newly discovered family.Found the historical info about the WW2 era and the female pilots very interesting,even though it also shows once again,how our government cares nothing about our enlisted men and women and sees them only as expendable warm bodies! Ignoring the contribution of our WASPS for decades!
Great read and highly recommended!

A cross between a sitcom and a soap opera with totally unbelievable characters, especially the psychiatrist. Insulting and insipid to its subject and southern women.

One of very few perks about living alone is being able to read books like this, non-stop; staying in robe and slippers all morning, and finishing it with regret. More please!

Great story! very informative and fun too!

Fannie Flagg is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed this story immensely. Ms. Flagg has a poignant style of writing which I feel is heartwarming and unforgettable. This story is one that I know I`ll read again!

This book was funny, and I enjoyed learning about women who helped the war effort during WWII as WASP's or Women Air Force Service Pilots. It was an interesting read.

Fannie Flagg has done it again! Another great story full of Southern characters, with a northern twist. I love how she intertwined history from WW2 into a present-day mystery. At the age of 60+, Sookie learns how to be herself more and more, and to understand that others do not consider her a weak, nothing-kind of person. It's never too late to learn such things. Brava Fannie Flagg!
