Standing in the Rainbow by Fannie Flagg
Book DescriptionThe time is 1946-2000. The Place is Elmwood Springs, Missouri. World War II has ended. Neighbour Dorothy broadcasts daily from her front room - to an audience across the state - the antics of her wayward son Bobby and adolescent Anna Lee. It's hard to keep secrets in a community like theirs, but life isn't perfect, and even Neighbour Dorothy has a tragedy as well hidden as it can be. Into their midst comes the Oatman Family, white Southern Gospel singers who arrive for a pharmaceutical convention, and blow the place away. And then there's Hamm Sparks, a super-salesman everyone likes and trusts; and Charlie Fowler, the poultry king who can see the future in a bucket-to-go; and a wealth of other unforgettable residents. Not to mention the brand new Three Little Pigs Cafeteria, with its pink neon pig casting a glow over the high street and pointing the way to the future...

All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion, Paperback (March 2015)
Wisconsin, 1941. With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men's work and the All-Girl Filling Station is born, complete with neat little caps, short skirts, and roller-skates. Their peace doesn't last long though: skilled women are needed to fly planes for the war effort...
I Still Dream About You, Paperback (June 2011)» View all books by Fannie Flagg
Meet Maggie Fortenberry. 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 an elegant house with an adoring husband and 2.5 children. Instead, she makes a living selling that dream to others.
UK Kirkus Review » In this companion novel to Welcome To The World, Baby Girl, Fannie Flagg revisits the residents of Elmwood Springs, tracing their lives and loves from 1948 to 2000. Elmwood Springs is a small town in Southern Missouri where everybody knows everybody else. As the story begins, the Second World War has ended and the mood is cheerful. Neighbour Dorothy continues to broadcast her successful radio programme from her own living room and the rest of the state is able to listen in on the antics of her wayward children. One day the Oatman Family Southern Gospel Singers arrive in town, and before they're gone again, they've left one member in town and taken a resident with them. Betty Rae Oatman is the member who stays to enjoy the simple life of a small town, but who soon finds herself in the biggest house of them all. Fannie Flagg's books are perfect feelgood reading and she certainly delivers once again, combining comedy, romance and excellent storylines to produce yet another rich and poignant tapestry of small-town America.
