Sometimes answers to questions are found by wandering down a familiar garden path. Sometimes puzzles are solved by unraveling our dreams. While relaxing on a wooden bench under an old maple tree, Allison and her grandmother, Happy, sip lemonade. Answers are revealed as Happy pulls memories from a plastic bag. A simple silver ribbon ties everything together and connects them to past generations. An important lesson of life is learned. Love is shared. Indeed, heart to heart, they're never alone.

Wilson looks at the social and literary impact of this significant genre and charts its role in the development of the novel as a form and its status in the literary marketplace.

Can you believe what you see?
