    "Fun and God with Dorothy"

    Today I found the first book in an older series that entertained me immensely. 87 year old Dorothy Jean has lived on her 180 acre farm in Partonville (Pardon me ville), Illinois, for her whole life. Her husband and daughter are dead, and her two boys and grandchildren visit infrequently, but Dorothy lives a brilliant life amongst all of the folks in her small town. An old friends's daughter and grandson are coming to town from New York, to close out her aunt's home. And she hopes to get in and out of town as quickly as possible. But she finds her heart strangely opened by Dorothy and her friends.

    Baumbich is a Christian humorist and she does a bang up job with Dorothy Dearest, who is always talking to " The Big Guy" with a conclusion of "Dear Lord--Do SOMETHING". The situations are realistic but are handled with a prayerful touch, mixed with a large dash of fun!! Filled will a full cast of strangely lovable people, the is the beginning of more hopefully great reads for me. I listened to this on audio and highly recommend it to everyone .

    "Great!!"
    What did you love best about Dearest Dorothy, Are We There Yet??

    This was funny and I was sad when it was finished.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dorothy; she's a hip old lady that doesn't mind getting into anything and she has her faith in God that keeps her going.


    What does Cynthia Darlow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I absolutely LOVE how she narrates a story. She really brings the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh so much! I listened on my commute to work or when I travel and I know people thought I was nuts because I would laugh out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    Just keep the Dearest Dorothy stories coming! She is hilarious!!
