Publisher Comments:

One of the most adored characters in childrenÕs literature is the eccentric, forceful, bighearted Grandma Dowdel, star of the Newbery AwardÐwinning A Year Down Yonder and Newbery HonorÐwinning A Long Way from Chicago. And it turns out that her story isnÕt over. ItÕs now 1958, and a new family has moved in next door to Mrs. Dowdel: a minister and his wife and kids. Soon Mrs. Dowdel will work her particular brand of charm on all of them, and they will quickly discover that the last house in town might also be the most vital.

Synopsis:

It is 1958, and a new family has moved in next door to Grandma Dowdel: a Methodist minister and his wife and three kids. Soon Mrs. Dowdel will work her particular brand of charm on all of them.

Beverly B, August 20, 2013 (view all comments by Beverly B)
Another story in the wonderful saga of Grandma Dowdel. This time the plot revolves around the new neighbors who have moved to town to revive an old community church. Although the provincial reverend and his wife are unsure what to make of the eccentric Mrs. Dowdel, the children take to her right away and somehow she ends up in the middle of their adventures and misadventures. Although not as unforgettable as the classic, A Year Down Yonder, anyone who enjoyed the first Mrs. Dowdel novels, will enjoy this, too.
