Wisconsin, 1941 With all the men off to war, Fritzi and her sisters must learn men's work - from fixing flats to driving the tow truck. They add their own touches, too: neat little caps, short skirts and roller skates, and the All-Girl Filling Station is born. Their peace doesn't last long though: skilled women are needed to fly planes for the war effort. Alabama, 2005 Mrs Sookie Earle has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to putting her feet up. But then one day a package arrives. Its contents knock Sookie sideways, propelling her back to the 1940s, and four irrepressible sisters whose wartime adventures force them to reimagine who they are, and what they are capable of.Read Less

If you're a fan of sweet, funny entertainment, this book is for you - and if you've read Ms. Flagg's previous novels, you'll recognize some characters in this new one. She's a fabulous storyteller who kept my interest and I was sorry when I came to the end of the book.
