The Fishing Story by Beth Richards
You really feel like you can see in your mind her Great-Grandmothers place. In the beginning, you feel like thats what the story is going to be about. But then, it turns into a story about her grandmothers failing memory, which I can relate to. My own grandmother for the past few years has been getting progressively worse, and my great-grandmother has terrible Alzheimer's, and is likely not to live to see next year. We are all surprised that she even lived past the summer. Richard's perfectly captures the devastating experience of watching some one fade away.
