This is one of those books that has you laughing out loud. Elna Shimfissle is a hoot! She is a unique individual and has you appreciating her sense of humor, her wonderful attitude about life, and her curiosity about the world.
Then you factor in Norma and her husband, Mackie, and you have a delightful view of life in Elmwood Springs. Norma is a hypochondriac and a worrywart. She can get on the reader’s nerves but you will find that she does have a heart of gold.
I listened to the audiobook version and loved Fannie Flagg’s narration.
