A young girl, who loves her mother, stays with her grandmother while her mother finds work far away. She writes to her mother, and never hears back, until finally she hears the news that her mother will soon be home with her again.
A marvelous book by a black author; great way to insert multicultural characters into a universal theme of family and love.
