As 80-year-old Mrs Cleo Threadgoode tells Evelyn Couch her life story, she escapes the Rose Terrace Nursing Home and returns to Whistle Stop, Alabama, in the 1930s. She tells the tale of two women: the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend, Ruth, who, back in the 30s, ran a little place offering good barbecue, good coffee, all kinds of love and laughter, and even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present, for Evelyn and for us, will never be quite the same.
Not the whole book!
I am disappointed because this is not the full book! So much missing! I have the whole book in paperback so I know! iTunes I want my money back! Having said this I do love this book & although chunks are missing it still has some good bits included. Should have made it more clear that the audiobook was shortened version.
