When developers in Ballard, Washington, were building a giant shopping mall, feisty octogenarian Edith Wilson Macefield's house was in the way. They offered her a million dollars. She told them to take a hike. As construction supervisor, Barry Martin was determined to make things as easy for Edith as he could. And when she asked him to drive her to a hair appointment, an unlikely friendship was sparked, one that changed them both forever.

I love this story! I've lived in Seattle and know Ballard and I could visualize a lot of what was going on and where. I liked how bits and pieces of Edith's life became known over the course of this book. What's true and what isn't? I certainly don't know but I also don't really care. Edith is the kind of person I hope to be when I get that old. And Barry did quite well in learning how to have a caring relatonship with Edith, with the added bonus of getting insights into how to interact with his own parents. It was a quick but very satisfying read.
