Blackberries in the dark 5 editions

Cover of: Blackberries in the dark | Mavis Jukes

"When Austin got off the airplane, his grandmother was waiting for him-wearing a white linen suit and white linen shoes and a hat with artificial cherries on it."

About the Book

"Austin's visit to his grandmother's is the first since Grandpa died. Austin notices Grandpa's things but feels the emptiness of his absence. This spare story vividly captures the emotions of painful times and shows how they ease with sharing and remembering. Boy and grandfather were close, but boy and grandmother seem destined to be just as close, with Grandpa's memory to bind them. Poignant and perceptive, this has impressive resonance, and readers won't easily shed its warm afterglow."--(starred) Booklist. From the Trade Paperback edition.
