Who am I?
Why did Susan love this book?
I savored this account of a boy’s Christmas visit to his two sets of grandparents. The key to the exquisiteness of this book is its point of view. The narrator is nobody special.
Yet he, like all of us past a certain age, brings the perspective of maturity. He pulls back the curtain and shows readers the quiet love in an ordinary family.
Andy Catlett showed me that wisdom is a treasure painfully earned, which can be shared with those willing to receive it. Berry’s narrative is slow, rich, and beautiful.
