The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg

The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg was a Benbrook Library book club choice and it didn't disappoint.
Fannie Flagg puts together a great cast of quirky characters with all her usual humor, and some Southern charm thrown in.

From the cover:
Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps travelling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.
