Love Dandelion Clocks? Grab a refuel of charm, wit and wisdom. Youth and old age: Erin and Martha. Can they ever connect? Imagine: it’s a glorious summer. Where are you? At the beach or shopping with your buddies? Lucky you. Erin is at Oak Hill Home for the Elderly. Furious at being forced to help out. Why don’t her friends and family care how she feels? Martha is even angrier. She hates being stuck in the home. And she can’t even make herself understood. But as Erin learns to listen to Martha, she slowly begins to make her own voice heard… An extra-big love heart for Rebecca’s latest: a book that says ‘express yourself’ (wisely).
