Ann Kilkelly’s text provides a memorable and moving portrait of “Grandma” who, despite family resistance, decides to embark on a train tip from St. Paul to Montana to visit her cousin Marge.  She is lulled by the repetitive sounds of the train into memories and dreams of her past.  As she remembers, she rejoices in her life.  Medium difficulty; holding the pitch is a challenge!
