The Rain Catchers
Written by Jean Thesman
Every story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. That's the way it is at grandmother's house where tea is served each day at four and tales of death and divorce, illness and abandonment are shared by grandmother's circle of friends. The women watch over one another and eveyone watches over Grayling -- whose own story has never been told her to hear.But in a summer of many changes, fourteen-year-old Grayling encounters love and romance, joy and saddness...and the need to know her own story -- from the very beginning.
