Summary
"Until she met Obrum Kehler, serious Sarah Sudermann had never laughed. Her mother said she always reached for the black things first. As a young girl, she was haunted by a vision of her grandmother bolt upright in her black trough coffin, laughing so hard her bonnet slipped off to the side and hung from one ear. But then Obrum looked at her with his robin's egg eyes and red paint on his nose. And then there was the lawnswing . . . and the piano. Not practical. Not necessary. Especially for a young couple struggling through the Great Depression. When Beethoven Blatz enters to tune their piano everything is in place for the Kehler family to make great music together. Full of love, longing, and tenderness, Grandmother, Laughing is a story about unconventional families and the lengths we will go to find fulfillment for ourselves and the ones we cherish."-- Provided by publisher.
