"Knuckles, Grandma Bea," is a charming story about how those on the outside of our own families can hold meaning in our lives, sometimes much like our own relatives do. It starts in a playful way and takes us through the process of learning how to deal with illness and grief, and attachment and loss in a way that also emphasizes the idea that true connection never dies. Seen through the eyes of a child's interpretation, Grandma Bea is a good book for anyone who has lost, or may lose an older relative, teacher or caregiver and offers another way to look at the narrative that love lives eternally within each of us."   Madison Charap, Intuitive Counselor, Healer
