Dearest Dorothy, Are We There Yet? And Dearest Dorothy, Slow Down, You're Wearing Us Out!

By Charlene Ann Baumbich. Penguin Books. 2004. $10.95 each.
Review by Wayne Hager

Watch out Mitford, N.C. and Father Tim. Dorothy Jean Westray and her hometown of Partonville, Ill. have arrived on the scene. Fans of Jan Karon and her Mitford series will be pleased to meet a new hometown and its matriarch, octogenarian Dorothy Jean Westray. Dorothy is full of faith, spunk and humor enough to keep the reader chuckling all through the book. Dorothy is joined by a host of unforgettable characters that provide the backdrop for Dorothy's exploits. This series will warm your heart and draw you willingly into Dorothy's life as she lives in faith and confidence in a loving God.

As we meet Dorothy, she is trying to decide whether to sell her beloved farm to a development company. Her decision will not only change her life but will have profound effects for her community. All through her story, Dorothy's moves as easily in and out of conversation with God as she does the entertaining assortment of characters who live in Partonville.

Baumbich has created a delightful character in Dorothy and placed her among people that are most memorable. More mature adults will probably find one of their friends among the pages and younger adults will wish that they had someone like Dorothy to glean wisdom. If you want some enjoyable, good-hearted reading, try this series. I hope more books are in the works for the future.
