sweet, simple vignettes that take you to a different time and place. the writing is sparse but took me back to my childhood, which was a 70's childhood. despite the generational differences, i still felt a connection.

I enjoyed her series of vignettes about growing up in the 1950s in a small town and her adventures with her three siblings and parents. They are both funny and poignant in describing the experiences and explorations of a young girl with much imagination and curiosity and evoked memories of my own childhood during the same period but a very different setting.
