In her people-smart way, Kimberly Willis Holt introduces us to a Louisiana family: touching, lyrical, and always intriguing, their stories reveal the powerful connections between four generations.

The journey begins in 1939 with Rose, who moves with her mother and siblings from rural Texas to live with their estranged grandfather in the Louisiana bayou. Rose connects with this flavorful community through her love of books and by driving a bookmobile.

Two decades later, Merle Henry, Rose's son, is more passionate about trapping a mink than about reading, although there is a place in his heart for Old Yeller. In 1973, Merle Henry's daughter, Annabeth, feels torn between reading fairy tales and a crush on a real-life knight in shining armor. And in the present day, Annabeth's son, Kyle, finds himself in a bind: he hates reading, but the only summer job he can get is at the library.

    " I purchased this book at a reading conference where Kimberly Willis Holt was a guest speaker. Her talk was entertaining and her stories of the bookmobile drew me right in. I found the first Rose's stories delightful--couldn't get enough of them. However, I found that the following accounts seemed like Holt was trying too hard to tie these generational characters together. Overall, a very good book but not one of my favorites. "

    " Think it was okay but could have been great. Thought I missed out on the best part of each story. With trying to get all the generations in, the author missed the chance to let us fall in love with each time period. Would have rather seen this be a series with each book going deeper into the characters lives. "

    " I was surprised at how much I liked this book and the way the author ties together four generations of a Louisiana family by the influence of books in their lives. The story starts with Rose in 1939, who, looking 16, gets a job driving a bookmobile at age 14, and develops a love of books. How her children and grandchildren react to books is intriguing. I think teenagers would enjoy this book. "
