Stewart and Small live in a historic home on a bend of the St. Joseph River in Michigan.From AudioFile:
As each month unfolds, Miss McGillicuddy has a purposeful task--quilt-making, reading, picking cherries, or feeding animals. All the while, she observes each new and remarkable development in her yard. This year a tree of unusual shape and speedy growth appears and attracts guests of all description. What is growing on the tree, and how will Miss McGillicuddys year end? Randye Kayes voice floats above the serene background music and sound effects. Her cadence is gentle and measured, mirroring the observant main character. The slow pace provides thinking time for both listeners and Miss McGillicuddy herself as they ponder the various changes in nature that take place over the course of this extraordinary year.
