The beloved author returns to the small town at the heart of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe with a heartwarming novel about secrets of youth rediscovered hometown memories and everyday magic Bud Threadgoode grew up in the bustling little railroad town of Whistle Stop Alabama with his mother Ruth church going and proper and his Aunt Idgie the fun loving hell raiser Together they ran the town's. This story begins in November of 1938 inside the Train Station in Birmingham Alabama followed by a brief glimpse at both Whistle Stop and a little boy and his dog running alongside the train If you’ve read Fannie Flagg’s Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café or seen the movie you’ll undoubtedly recognize many of the characters in this story Buddy Evelyn Couch Ninny and Idgie along with others Years pass as this story progresses but it returns to yesteryear off and on to fill in the blanks for those who have forgotten what a hellion Idgie was or never had the opportunity to meet Ruthie’s grandmother Ruth or hear the stories of the past Dot Weems who writes and publishes a newsletter weekly fills in things along the way as well the goings on in the town Such were the ways of life many years ago which adds a touch of charm Stops are made along the way and you see the town’s demise as the years pass as people pass Through Dot’s newsletters you find out that Idgie Threadgoode closed down the Whistle Stop Café in the mid 60’s and ‘retires’ to Florida near her brother Julian Buddy marries becomes a veterinarian becomes a father and then and eventually a grandfather Meanwhile Whistle Stop slowly becomes a town forgotten by the world but remembered by the few who lived and loved their lives there But as those of us who know once you’ve ‘been to’ Whistle Stop once you’ve met those characters they continue to live inside of you for long after This isn’t a story you’ll fall in love with for the beautiful prose but maybe you’ll fall in love with the charm of a way of life that really no longer exists and if not I suspect you will fall in love with the people – at least most of them I loved meeting the new characters as well as seeing how the lives of the characters I already knew had changed Idgie for me particularly so as she remains one of my favourite characters up there with the most memorably wonderful literary character Ivy Rowe Pub Date 27 Oct 2020 Many thanks for the ARC provided by Random House Publishing Group – Random House via NetGalley
