Fans of author Fannie Flagg's characteristic Southern wit and charm will not be disappointed with this engaging and delightful novel. Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, having just married off the last of her daughters, is looking forward to some peace and quiet with her husband Earle - or as peaceful as life can be with Sookie's domineering mother Lenore Simmons Krackenberry on the scene. But when Sookie accidentally discovers all is not what it seems in her family tree she embarks on a journey that takes the reader back through generations, to a time when a strong woman and her sisters took over the family's filling station in time of need. While discovering her family roots Sookie just might discover her own true self along the way. A fantastic blend of humor and history that explores an often overlooked corner of history, "The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion" is the perfect heartwarming summer read.
