Very disappointed. Just as I was getting into this book it was over.
This short story is about a family whose grandma wasn't the most pleasant person to have around nor very nice to her daughter-in-law. When the grandma passes they actually miss her a bit, even if she didnt treat them all with respect & love as family should to one another. I guess it shows u that u will miss what you no longer have, even if it may not seem like they deserve it. It was a quick read.

Zajímavá pointa.
