Jake and his eighty-eight-year-old grandfather, Billy, are kindred souls. They share a special bond, and Billy always tells Jake about the sod house in which he grew up, the foundation of which still rests in the prairie around the family’s farm. So when Billy asks Jake to build him a new sod house, Jake knows that he will—with Billy’s “Angel Dog” Lucy at his side—even though Billy becomes ill. Beloved children’s author Patricia MacLachlan crafts a poignant and tender story with “Kindred Souls.” The subject matter is nostalgic and deep, and the language contains farming terminology such as “slough” and “windrow.” The story itself exudes sadness and follows a basic plotline in which little occurs but which is nevertheless touching. Children who have enjoyed a close relationship with a grandparent or other adult will understand “Kindred Souls” and will likely develop a greater appreciation of memories, dreams, and time spent with loved ones. Be prepared, however, because despite its short length, this book will leave a lasting impression and a sense of melancholy.
