I loved this book! It is really sweet, but also very sad. The relationship between the boy and the older woman is very special. What makes it even sadder is that it is a frank, autobiographical story about Truman Capote's early years. He is raised by distant and elderly cousins in a small rural town in Alabama. The woman in the story is his cousin, and his only friend. It is truly a magical book, and a wonderful one to read during the Christmas season.
