This book doesn't tell a story so much as it tells feelings. The best skills that the author uses are in expressing thoughts and emotions and a sense of feelings for each of the characters. This enabled the story to have personalities that were alive with the sense of wonder, or uncertainty or confidence or whatever feelings were called for because of the circumstances. Amazing that this can be done with all the generations in the story. Grammy is such a wonderful characterization and is the pivot point for the posterity. The teaching and true education begin with her. Prairie's parents are also so well drawn and insightful and the lessons they slip in are equally valued and filled with wisdom and timeliness. Prairie and Ivy are the blessed beneficiaries of both challenges and opportunities and their recognition of the highs and lows, the good and bad, the "happys" and "sads" that comprise living and growing are so beautifully portrayed. This book opens the heart and stays.
