Inspiration for Jan Karon...

It was bitingly cold despite the sunshine. The slow-moving Cam was dappled with the last yellow leaves of autumn, and a vicious little wind stirred the dust along Silver Street.

She bought fruit, bacon, and sausages, enough to provide supper and a breakfast and to give her time o check the provisions in Eileen's store cupboard.

She also bought a box of chocolates for Lovell and flowers for the invalid; and, at the last minute, dived into a shabby toy shop for crayons and balloons. Thus armed, she returned to the car, and having deposited her purchases, decided to treat herself to a splendid lunch at the garden House hotel nearby.

She was on her way again, much fortified, within the hour.

A happy memory for me is that I was able to introduce the Miss Read books to an 88-year-old relative who enjoyed them so much, especially after the 'other' books provided by her retirement-home library-service :) Miss Read is an absolute craftswoman.
