Book overview: One little girl and her grandmother face an obstacle that erases memories and takes away the voice of love.
Della is so proud of her grandmother who was once a famous gospel singer. She wants to sing and travel just like Grandma did. She even dresses like Grandma. But the security of Della and Grandma’s loving relationship is shaken by the fact that Grandma has the “forgetting disease”, also known as Alzheimer’s disease.
One Sunday morning, Grandma wants to sing once more solo in church, but she’s having trouble remembering the words. Can Della help Grandma sing one more time so she can have the joy of what might be her last song?
