Being a stay-at-home mom in the 80's was, at times, a mind-numbing experience. But I began to get out in the world one day a week in 1988, working at a local church's Mother's Day Out program. I was assigned to the baby room and I was teamed with another mom who became a good friend.

Johnnie also had a baby and we spent our days with the babies talking about our families, of course, and also about books and philosophy and the wide world. Johnnie told me about growing up in a very tiny town in South Texas in a big family and she told me about a wonderful teacher she had who encouraged her to venture out.

That teacher was the author of this book, Annette Sanford.

Thanks for sending this to me, zmrzlina. I will start Eleanor and Abel today.

A very gentle romance. Author Annette Sanford caught the character of Eleanor, a never-married retired school teacher, beautifully. Abel arrives in Eleanor's life and dramatically alters her world. Lovely story.

Got this in the mail over the weekend... I've got quite a few "ring/ray" books ahead of it in the queue -- I'll read it as quickly as possible, report back, and send it on its way. Thanks for sharing -- looks like a really sweet story!

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I recently found this book had fallen behind a book shelf. I tried to reach out to the next in line (she's still active 20 years later), but I got no response, so in the spirit of bookcrossing, I'm adding it to the Swap Up Mt. TBR book box headed from here up the left coast to Seattle, WA. I hope Eleanor & Abel find some new readers & friends.
