A Year Down Yonder Read Å 6 S and everyone else All Mary Alice can know for certain is this when trying to predict how life with Grandma might turn out better not Move to Awards New. Highly enjoyable down homey tales of yesteryear If you can t get enough of stuff like Jean Shepherd s A Christmas Story this little series is just your patch o sweet potatoesGrandma Dowdel is a fiesty old broad think Vicki Lawrence s Mama character who possesses a Jeeves esue way of fixing others problems In this book two Grandma gets a visit from her teenaged granddaughter from whose pov we see the story unfold It s a year in the life of a teen girl going to school and living away from family during the Depression era in the rural MidwestRichard Reck s characters are larger than life and fun as all get out He does an admirable job with period details making it easy for the reader to get lost in the time and place of these delightful scenes A Year Down Yonder is good fun but probably a little less over the top silly than the first book For me it set a better tone this way
