Sweet historical novel about a young girl growing up in turn of the century (1899) Texas who connects with her naturalist grandfather and becomes interested in science/nature herself (at a time when the female lot in life was confined). Very likable character in Callie Vee. Didn't love it as much as some, but a fine piece of writing.
