Synopsis

I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg

Meet Maggie Fortenberry. To others, her life seems pretty much perfect – she’s beautiful, charming and successful, just as you’d expect of a former Miss Alabama. But, in fact, Maggie is perfectly miserable. By now she should have been living in one of the elegant houses on Red Mountain with the adoring husband and 2.5 children. Instead, she makes a living selling that dream to others – through her estate agency Red Mountain Realty, where lately business has been going from bad to worse.

But just as Maggie is about to give up hope, she comes up with the perfect plan. And that’s when strange things start happening. As Maggie finds herself catapulted into one surprising discovery after another, she learns valuable lessons about the nature of friendship, the challenges of modern life and the dangers of impossible dreams. She also learns that everybody, dead or alive, has at least one little secret . . .

Reviews

Fannie Flagg has long perfected a recipe for whimsical tales of the Southern sisterhood -- Emma Hagestadt * Independent * It's clear that Maggie, who grew up in an apartment above a movie theater, deserves a bright Technicolor ending. Readers will root for her to get one * Washington Post * A golden-girl romp every bit as eccentric as it sounds...there is something touching about her plucky, world-weary survivors that has us rooting for them all the way * Independent * This deliciously indulgent novel is as charming as Scarlet O'Hara and as comforting as a mug of cocoa * Easy Living * Flagg is a consummate storyteller * Guardian *
