Publisher's Summary

Change is hard for Mitzi Miller, a spunky, elderly widow who misses her house and the way things used to be. After her husband dies, she regretfully sells the fixer-upper she owned for half a century. Mitzi is still homesick nearly five years later.

On her 76th birthday, she grants her own wish to return "home" with a bizarre request for an old pencil sharpener she left behind. There, she embarks on a nostalgic journey led by her memories and the new owner's bouncy dog.

Can this visit bring Mitzi the closure she needs to help her move on?

A beautiful heartfelt story

The Pencil Sharpener is a beautiful story of a grandmother’s reminiscence of a life that has passed. D.S. Lucas’s story is written with such details that you can imagine being the main character as she experiences a visit to her previous family home and all the emotions that results from it. It’s a sweet tale of reminiscing, longing for a life gone and acceptance/realization of life she has now. Listen to this sweet heartfelt story and step in the shoes of another even if it is only for a bit- you will not be disappointed.
