Listened to this with my true love. I wasn’t the only one sniffling at the ending.
I love this book with all my heart. Grandma Dowdel reminds me a lot of my own grandmother, and listening to this brings her back a little. I love the cats in the cob house, and what happens when the tornado comes to town. I love how Joey is and isn’t here for the whole book, just like real life.
It’s absolutely splendid, and a lovely narrator doesn’t hurt a bit. Highly recommended.
