"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"-- Provided by publisher.

The history of an "all-girl" gas station during the 1940s is a catalyst for a middle-aged woman to re-evaluate her own life.

The story started slowly, then it took off running. Each chapter read faster and faster. Interesting alternating chapters between the then and now; enjoyable characters.

I enjoy every Flagg book I've listened to or read. Wish someone would make more movies based on her books...hello Hollywood or Georgia, are you listening????

A charming book laced with drama, humor, and history delightfully read by the wonderful Fanny Flagg.

Be patient and press through the beginning. It's worth it. An amazing story with some history based on reality.

The book begins with a southern lady that finds out by accident that she is adopted, that part was a bit slow .Then the book delved into some of the history of women working during WWll as pilots known as W.A.S.P.S., and the way they were treated, this really peaked my interest. I had never heard this before
A very enjoyable read and a look into the Womens' Airforce Service Pilots.

I had trouble getting into the story because I was annoyed with our main character's attitude after learning she was adopted. Once the flashbacks to the past started, I really enjoyed the story, especially the information about women pilots in World War II.

Excellent narrator! Wouldn't have been as fun without the southern and Wisconsin accents. Entertaining characters make the history of the women pilots in WWII come alive.

Cute story with a bit of humor, a bit of history, a good narrator and just an all round easy read for a time when anything more would have been too much.

I'm a Fannie Flagg fan and really enjoyed this book. Good character development - (though the main character seems a little dingy at times) and an interesting plot. I liked the addition of WWII history. Even though the story jumps between places in time and different locations, it was easy to follow in the downloadable audio version. This was a perfect July read. And Fannie does a great job with narration.

I thought this was going to just be a light beginning of the summer read, but I actually learned some important history.
