Most families have "the other Grandmother," the one who is visited less often, whose own visits are anticipated with trepidation, the one with whom contact is at least as much a matter of duty as love. In this touching memoir, award-winning author Linda Hewitt remembers the Christmas she came, at last, to know hers.

I will listen to this heartwarming tale again. This retelling of holiday gatherings is delightfully intertwined with memories of good food which brought back my own best memories of getting together with relatives. I believe that, particularly, women of the past expressed love in the wonderful special recipes they developed and took pride in offering to family and holiday gatherings.
Elisabeth's youthful and delightful reading brought to me to a time of life of my own where holidays were filled with loved ones. My own memories of those times are deeply rooted in the wonderful food prepared by my older relatives and served at the table truly as love offerings.
Yes, I wanted to listen to the full story once I started it. This book brings to mind for each of us a person, and a point of time where we truly connected.
This book will make a lovely Christmas gift for anyone with sweet memories of family.
