Just sit down and wallow in the glorious comfort of this book. It is small-town America which Fannie Flagg is so good at. It stars Sookie, a sweet, slightly dippy, 59-year old who discovers she is not only adopted but also 60! She goes in search of her roots. What she finds is truly lovely. She actually is able to meet up with some family members and go to the filling station reunion of the title. There are stories from the family going back to the war years and the details of serving WASPS is fascinating. All in all a perfect gem.

If you like Fannie Flagg you might also like to read books by Rebecca Wells, Elizabeth Berg and Adriana Trigiani.

Synopsis

The All-girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men's work, from fixing flats to driving the tow truck. Wearing smart little caps, short skirts and roller skates, they fly round the forecourt of The All-Girl's Filling Station. But it's wartime, and the sisters' peace won't last long. In Clear Point, Alabama, the only war Mrs Sookie Earl knows about is the one she's waging against the Blue Jays in her garden. But then one day a package arrives. Its contents knock Sookie sideways. Feeling like a stranger in her own life, Sookie's search for answers takes her back to the 1940s and four irrepressible sisters whose wartime adventures force them to reimagine who they are, and what they are capable of.
