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!

I enjoyed this book. I loved reading about family life during World War II. I also liked how the main present-day character, Sookie, grew stronger emotionally. I now understand her deal with Blue Jays!

Fannie Flagg never disappoints. Start to finish it's a story to wrap yourself in and learn some history along the way. The characters are always entertaining with lessons of life to apply and appreciate. Her characters live long after the pages are turned. Another great story from Fannie Flagg.
