Read "The All-girl Filling Station's Last Reunion" by Fannie Flagg.
Flagg, an Alabama native and New York Times Bestselling Author, is best known for her beloved novel, "Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Café".
Her 2013 novel, "The All-girl Filling Station's Last Reunion", spans decades and generations, from the 1940's to today. This gentle, fun-loving mystery revolves around an Alabama woman, and five women who in 1943 worked in a Phillips 66 gas station, during the WWII years. Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her three daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with now is her mother, the formidable and imposing Lenore Simmons Krackenberry - never an easy task. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but she is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a shocking secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.
