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.

Terribly disappointing. I have liked most of Flagg's books but this one was just annoying. After 120 pages, I gave up. A grown woman discovers she was adopted and now she thinks she doesn't know who she is all because she was adopted. She runs around like a ninny. Give this one a pass.

I couldn't stop listening. This is a funny book that southerners will appreciate. Sookie is very entertaining. If you are looking for a light read, then this a good book for you.
