Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs to make jam, and the next thing she knows, she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet, including Neighbor Dorothy (from Standing in the Rainbow) and her husband in the unlikeliest of places. Meanwhile, back home, Elner's nervous, high-strung niece Norma faints and ends up in bed with a cold towel on her head; Elner's neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, runs his eighteen-wheeler into a ditch - and the entire town is thrown out of kilter and left wondering, "What is life all about, anyway?" Except for Tot Whooten, who owns Tot's Tell It Like It Is Beauty Shop. Her main concern is that the end of the world might come before she can collect her social security. In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful: Heaven is actually right here, right now, with people you love, neighbours you help, friendships you keep. A plea for honest doubt and humanity in an over-certain world, "Can't Wait to Get to Heaven" is proof once more that Fannie Flagg "was put on this earth to write", spinning tales as sweet and refreshing as lemonade on a summer day, with a little extra kick thrown in.Read Less
