Fried Green Tomatoes, Can't Wait to Get to Heaven, and I Still Dream About You: Three Bestselling Novelsby Fannie Flagg
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFE
Fannie Flagg has enchanted readers with her warm, wonderful, and witty books for nearly forty years. Now this delightful eBook bundle showcases three of her classic novels—full of heart and smart and refreshing as sweet tea on a hot summer day.
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFE
“It’s very good, in fact, just wonderful.”—Los Angeles Times
Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s: of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale Mrs. Threadgoode tells is also of two women—of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth—who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present—for Evelyn and for us—will never be quite the same again. . . .
CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN
“Funny and utterly charming.”—The Miami Herald
It’s the strangest thing. One minute Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs in Elmwood, Missouri, 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. Meanwhile, back in Elmwood Springs, Elner’s high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold cloth 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 for a loop. In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful.
I STILL DREAM ABOUT YOU
“Undoubtedly [Flagg’s] wisest book, comic and compassionate.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch
Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect—she’s lovely, charming, and a successful agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child. But just when things seem completely hopeless, and the secrets of Maggie’s past drive her to a radical plan to solve it all, Maggie discovers, quite by accident, that everybody, it seems, has at least one little secret.

This is my 2nd book by Fannie Flagg, I love her style of writing! I highly recommend reading! I have a friend that listened to one of Fannies audiobooks and I did listen to some of the story: I truly enjoyed listening to that part of the story because Fannie read her own story and she was excellent and it was very funny!
