My only real problem with the book is that I really, really dislike the first chapter - so much so that I almost stopped reading the book at the bottom of page 11. I'm glad I kept going because all of the remaining chapters are first rate. The offending chapter has to do with a tornado tearing up the town and part of its adjacent cemetary. I thought it was unnecessarily grotesque, and nothing that happens in the rest of the book is dependent in any way on the events in chapter one. It's possible, I suppose, that one could look at the tornado in a metaphorical sense (the only explanation I can come up with) because "winds of change" do blow into town in chapter two. We meet emancipated women who act as role models for Peewee/Eleanor, and we have Eleanor herself coming to terms with her impending maturity and subsequent self-reliance. So, I recommend reading the first four or five pages, then skipping to the first page of chapter two and continuing on to the end of the book. It's a good book - but not a great one like either of the two Grandma Dowdel books I mentioned up front.
