Fourteen year old Will Tweedy can’t believe it! With his beloved grandma not even cold in her grave, curmudgeonly Grandpa Blakesee has up and married again! And not just anyone-Grandpa has picked the sweetest flower on the vine, the town milliner (who also happens to be a Yankee!), Miss Love Simpson. Gums are flappin’ and tongues are waggin’ all over town, but no one is more confused than Grandpa’s own kin. Will knows he ought to be mad for grandma’s sake, but Miss Love is so sweet he doesn’t know what to think. And it’s just about the time of his grandpa’s new marriage that things start happenin’ at an alarming rate in the turn-of-the-century, sleepy town of Cold Sassy…country, quirky and oh so funny, Cold Sassy Tree is a hoot and a holler of a good classic read.
One thought on “Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns”
Cold Sassy Tree sounds like something I would have come across if I had looked a little harder in my own middle school library (2003-2004)! It had a lot of 80s and early 90s books. I might check it out sometime if it’s on Paperbackswap.
