Young Lydia Grace Finch writes letters home to her family during the Great Depression. She has been sent to live with her uncle in New York City, where she helps in his bakery. Like her namesake, her grandmother, Lydia Grace loves to garden and she brings this passion with her from the country to the city. Along with the irrepressible spirit of Lydia Grace herself, it is her delight in beauty and hope for the future that makes this such an inspiring book. Picture book for Grade 1-5.
