Welcome to the World, Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg
Baby Girl follows a morning news show anchorwoman in the 1970s as she deals with the stress and pressure of her job, uncovers family secrets, reconnects to small-town, Southern living and overcomes it all to find her future.
The story is hopeful, romantic and a picturesque look at small town life. The characters are heartfelt and sweet. Some border on the edge of caricature but are so funny I couldn't stop chuckling at them.
This was a book I read countless times when I was younger. I was curious to see how I would feel about it after all this time. While I noticed the writing more this time around, I still found the story as sweet and as enjoyable as ever.
A great book to read if you're looking for a sweet story that won't make you think very much.
