At eighty-three Marcia Elder was alert and active but felt insecure about facing another winter alone, yet she dreaded giving up her old home and entering a re-tirement facility. So, with great resourcefulness, she advertised for a companion and eventually staked out a corner of her own-one with a view. Mildred Walker's skill as a storyteller never falters in this portrayal of an elderly woman who won't give up.
