Granny is back! But, she’s not in Smicksburg, but visiting her kin in Holmes County, Ohio!
Granny goes very reluctantly for a long visit to Ohio to visit her son. Six weeks! From Thanksgiving until Christmas! What will her knitting circle do without her? What will she do without them and their traditional Christmas party and cookie frolics?
But, once in Ohio, she knows why Daniel asked them for such a long stay. Family secrets need to be ironed out and their twenty-year-old daughter, Rachel, is ready to jump the fence.
Granny has dreaded a long stay in Holmes County since long lost family members are all gone, except for a shunned brother she’s never even told her knitting circle about. Can Granny forgive Noah, her dear bruder for selling the family farm to Walmart???
Lovely book. This author never fails to present well-rounded, believable characters. Her plots are well thought out without holes.
