Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
If possible I would give Fannie Flagg's new novel more than five stars!!! The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion: A Novel is an absolute delight to read...you can't put it down and you don't want it to end. Feeling as if you have had an afternoon with a true southerner who is a master story teller, you will be ready for her next book when you finish this one. The book is written with a dual story line...one in Alabama as a modern story and the other in Pulaski, Wisconsin in the forties.

Sookie Poole discovers a BIG secret one day just as her life was beginning to slow down after marring off her three daughters and leaving her with a empty nest; although her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry, who likes to run the entire town lives within walking distance of her, she allows her daughter to take care of the bills, mail, etc. And now the secret is out!!

Meanwhile, in Pulaski many years earlier, there is a filling station run by a Polish family with four girls who help run the filling station when their brother goes to war and their father has been hospitalized with TB. What fun and independence the girls are allowed with this adventure. Fritzi is the one who keeps the business going and delegates the jobs...of course business is booming with the females until gasoline is rationed....the war could not have been won without the female aviators who fly coast to coast in assisting the U.S. government although they were very late in being recognized. All the Jurdabralinski girls flew...had fun..heartaches..dangers..one became pregnant without a husband...one died in flight..one came home to marry...one organized the last reunion.

You will find many surprises, delights, tenderness, hilarious tales and a wonderful book. Get yurs from Amazon as I did...you will be so pleased you have this to look forward to. The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion: A Novel
