This is an enjoyable read for anyone who enjoys an old fashioned christian drama/romance. The story is told through the eyes of a 12 year old orphan boy who is trying to keep his world from changing. He is trying to keep his grandpa from finding a husband for his 18 yr old aunt who is the only mother he has. I grew to love all the characters.

Sure, it's unusual to have an eightee-year-old mother when you're twelve. But when you're an orphan and she's your aunt -- and the only mother you've ever had -- well as I explained, it had worked out real well.

That's why I got so riled up when I heard Grandpa and Uncle Charlie talkin' about findin' a fella for Auntie Lou!

You see, somethin' had to be done! I couldn't just sit back and watch our special family get broken up. But with Grandpa and Uncle Charlie workin' so hard to get Auntie Lou married off, I really had my job cut out for me.

Then when that poor preacher came along, it really go complicated ....

Wonderful, heartwarming start to this series seen through the eyes of a young boy who's had to handle far too much in his young life and doesn't want more change.

A very uplifting book with rich characters, Christian faith, and a happy ending that helps us all remember that sometimes the change we fear can be better than we ever dreamed.
