Praise

"Leisurely paced and never melodramatic, the slender plot is as integral … as the glowing character of the grandmother, whose goodness intensifies. "-Booklist

"This is an affectionate character study that will appeal to readers moved by The Cookcamp, wherein they first met Alicia."
-The Bulletin, Recommended
