This is the book that is flying with me on this trip. Yes, these are MY knees sitting in my seat on the plane!
It's about a 10 year old girl from Gees Bend (Yes, THAT Gees Bend!) Alabama somewhere in the early 1900s....haven't pinpointed the date on it yet, but I'm guessing 1920, 1930?
It's a delightful insightful read. Not very long...and yes, there is quilting involved!
The Author is Irene Latham. Give it a read yourself, you won't be disappointed in its tenderness, honesty, and poignancy!
I'm 1/2 way done already...maybe I'll be done by the time I reach Grand Rapids? :cD
And yes, I'm writing this from the food court at O'Hare on my layover!
