"But then, after several encounters when the horse had managed to chew my coat buttons before someone could rescue me, Reuben came up with the answer."

My Thoughts

Absolutely love the book and how it transports you to a different time and place. Hearing about family tales that build character and good morals from a loving grandmother is a fine addition to every family's home library. The writing style of Arleta Richardson draws you in, as you hang onto every word of the many characters in her book. (Like Mable and her friend Sarah Jane). In fact, you'll laugh aloud, (like the time grandma wore her dress backward), shed a tear and nod your head in agreement as you participate in a young girl's adventures as she shares marvelous memories told by a loving grandmother. This one touches your heart and stirs within a need to read more in the series. Wonderful stories of the good old days!

5/5 stars. Highly recommend.
