Synopsis: This is the poignant tale of a woman who resides in a nursing home, and who seems to live more in a worldof memories than here in the present. Although Miss Olivia is unable to respond, and their presence often seems to go unnoticed, daughter Angel and great-grandson Troy know better. Anything from a beautiful sunset to the mention of her porch swing - Troy's favorite place - can take her back into her past, from when she was just a little girl out on the farm with her papa, to a recent birthday shared with her daughter.

Laminack treats this sensitive topic with care, giving voice to the often silent tragedy of watching a loved one slip out of the present and into the past. Bergum's delicate watercolors also give soft expression to the love that holds a family together during difficult times.

About the Author: Lester Laminack is chair of the Department of Elementary and Middle Grades Education at Western Carolina University. He received his EDD from Auburn University and has been published in many professional and academic journals. Laminack currently resides near Asheville, North Carolina. He is also the author of TREVOR'S WIGGLY-WOBBLY TOOTH.

Constance R. Bergum was awarded the washington Writer's Award in 1993, as well as the Ezra Jack Keats Fellowship. She's also won the 1997 SCBWI Best Magazine Illustration award. Bergum lives with her husband and three children in Helena, Montana.
