Magical Memories . . . Grandma's wonderful memory and --like Grandma's attic and --holds a storehouse of treasures from the past. Anyone young enough to love a story (and that's just about everyone) will enjoy these glimpses of life on a Michigan farm more than 100 years ago. Come share in Grandma's childhood and meet her best friend, Sarah Jane. Time spent with these girls may be funny or touching, but it's never dull. Whether they're forging the autograph of John Greenleaf Whittier, plotting to help an unsuspecting classmate lose weight, or debating the relative merits of beauty versus goodness, the two friends are growing and learning about life and faith. Gifted storyteller Arleta Richardson grew up an only child in Chicago, living in a hotel on the shores of Lake Michigan. Under the care of her maternal grandmother, she listened for hours as her grandmother told stories from her own childhood. With unusual recall, Arleta began to write these stories for an audience that now numbers over 2 million. "My grandmother would be amazed to know her stories have gone around the world," Arleta says.
