Award-winning journalist Charlene Ann Baumbich delights millions with her endearing Dearest Dorothy novels.

In the quaint Southern Illinois town of Partonville, 88-year-old Dorothy and a colorful cast of townsfolk are all aflutter about a former resident's return, a mini-mall naming contest, and a spirited mayoral campaign.

Dorothy can't believe her 58-year-old son, Jacob, has left his successful Philadelphia law firm and is replacing Partonville's recently deceased lawyer. As the new mini-mall prepares to open, most of the townspeople - spurred on by a generous $100 first prize - are busy trying to create a clever name for it. And excitement builds as incumbent mayor Gladys McKern squares off against a surprising and innovative challenger whose powerful campaign slogans trigger a flurry of emotions in a race that's too close to call.

    " What a heartwarming and tender series. I cried and laughed and was able to really put myself in Partonville as one of the residents. Some thought provoking situations that end up centering around God and Scripture. Enjoy all 6 in the series and would highly recommend them to all. "
