Savor the sounds, tastes, smells and feelings that come to life only at Grandma's House - a memoir that transcends time and cultures.

The book cover and illustrations throughout the story replicate the house that still stands in Providence, RI today, as well as the items in the home of the author’s favorite childhood place - Grandma’s house. A series of vivid memories come alive through the light, impressionistic watercolor techniques on each page that lend itself to the story’s feeling of nostalgia for readers of all ages.

The story comes full circle, capturing how the author processes her childhood experiences in order to discover, as an adult, that her senses, thankfully, keep her cherished memories alive forever.
