And the winner is...!


There were excellent book recommendations in the Comments.  I plan to "do something with them" someday.  Most likely make them another Warm & Cozy Book Recommendations post.  Someday.

I went to Random.org and typed in the information.  The winner is... True Random Number Generator Chose #63!

"She" by Kathryn Tucker Windham (on Kindle) The author was known to every Alabama school child of the 70's and 80's as she was a southern story teller of ghost stories and southern life. She lived near the small Alabama town where I grew up and was a distant , distant relative. The book makes me laugh out loud and al fits my current life as I age in to my 50's. From Amazon ".... she faced old age and its accompanying limitations with humor and curiosity. In She, the book, whose spirit has not changed, and her alter ego, who moves haltingly toward her earthly end. She will leave you laughing and crying but also grateful and hopeful. Windham was putting the finishing touches on when she died, the author describes how she woke up one day to find that she had an unwanted houseguest, an old woman who had suddenly moved in and was taking over her life. Referring to this interloper simply as SHE, Windham invites readers into a lively colloquy between the author ."
Congratulations, PJ!

I have never heard of this book but had to comment to say that as an Alabamian I consider Windham a state treasure and was privileged to hear her speak once before her death.

I was wondering if the author of 'She' is a Christian?

Yes, she was. As she reached her 90's she wasn't able to go to church as often because of falling but she talks about it a good bit.
