Grandmother's suitcase. (It has a bit of the ring of the wardrobe in another story.) This one is the comfort and revelation of life beyond what we expect as well. It's the story of second chances.
When things get tough, Benita turns to her grandmother's diary for comfort. The losses of job and her grandmother turn Benita toward blessings and renewal.
This was a satisfying tale of family and friendships. The generations confirm that human nature doesn't change even when circumstances do.
