RIGHT AS RAIN

A fond, full face portrait of a grandmother as American as the apple pie she made, of Livermore Falls, Maine, in the early 1900's where Bernice was to grow up in her grandmother's home. Here was a large, comfortable and comforting figure--as she baked, laundered, gardened, raised pigs, hooked rugs, healed by Indian remedies, and generated much affection for the grandchildren she insisted on raising. Here too are memories of Grandpa, as she went to the village with him, to church on Sundays, watched him march in Memorial Day parades. Of the later years, when Grandma ""needed"" another child, and adopted Mildred, aged two; of Grandpa's death, and eventually Mildred's marriage- and her death after the birth of her second child.... Further in the revival of relatives, with perhaps not the humor of some of these chronicles, but indigenous earlier Americana.
