Book Review of A Year Down Yonder (Grandma Dowdel, Bk 2)

A Year Down Yonder (Grandma Dowdel, Bk 2)
reviewed on + 3 more book reviews

I really enjoyed the first book (A Long Way from Chicago) and, frankly, I never expected this sequel to live up to its predecessor. Turns out Mary Alice Dowdel is even more interesting than her older brother Joey as she and Grandma Dowdel bond in a series of adventures that have to be read to be fully appreciated. A truly wonderful read from front to back and one of those rare books that makes you slow down toward the end so you can enjoy it as long as possible.
