I love the stories in this book! Vila's work is always absorbing and compelling, and this book is no exception! I especially loved Grandma's House. Poignant and funny at the same time, it rang so true and just warmed my heart. Kudos to Vila for this wonderful work!

Here is an excerpt..."as a child of the city I admired the silver-fringed beauty of the tide. I loved how it mirrored the moods
