Welcome to the World, Baby Girl

content.chilifreshWelcome to the World, Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg

Flagg’s follow-up to the bestseller Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe is an amalgamation: part Southern yarn, part news story, part family drama. Gorgeous and ambitious Dena Nordstrom lives a glamorous life in New York City, working as a reporter on a network TV morning show, but when the inescapable stress gives her an ulcer, she returns to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where she lived with her mother before her mother disappeared. Characters in this book are, at times, colorful in their use of language and Dena must confront traumatic and damaging realities from her past. But, as she tries to unravel the mystery of her childhood and her mother’s disappearance, she uncovers the truth and discovers unexpected changes in herself.
