    "Where is Grandma Dowdle's personality?"
    What did you love best about A Year Down Yonder?

    I loved the continuing story of Mary Alice and Grandma Dowdle, and her antics. It was a great story!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lois Smith?

    I would like to have the narrator who was cast for "A Long Way from Chicago" in spite of the fact that the book is from the perspective of Mary Alice. He did such an excellent job with all of the characters, especially Grandma Dowdle. I did not enjoy Ms. Smith's interpretation at all.
