A Season of Gifts
Grandma Dowdel is back doing good deeds with her unique sense of kindness and justice in A Season of Gifts. It's 1958 and the Barnhart family has moved next door to Grandma. They are a family in need, and Grandma provides gifts in unexpected ways. One of the most enjoyable parts of this book is reading about the developing friendship between six year old Ruth Ann and Grandma Dowdel. I also appreciate Grandma's ways of getting even. I liked this book as much as the previous two in the series, A Long Way from Chicago and A Year Down Yonder.
