J.B. Hawkerabout this book: Remember when growing old gracefully was an admirable goal? Well, Matilda Thistlethwaite does, and she takes it one step further, going boldly into her eighth decade turning every day into an opportunity to fulfill all the possibilities still on offer.
Tillie, or Mrs. T. as she is sometimes known, has amassed a wealth of wisdom in her eighty-something years and is more than happy to share it with others. Although usually appreciated by her friends, including her special gentleman, Slim Bottoms, Tillie's advice can sometimes begin to grate.
Such is the case when she joins a local community choir and becomes embroiled in the personality conflicts in the group. When an overbearing soprano falls to her death, Tillie decides to reject the official conclusion that it is an accident.
Supremely confident in her own powers of deduction, Tillie skates perilously close to disaster as a result.
By the last page, lessons are learned about pride, jealousy, and greed. As one reviewer noted, "(In this story) People love, care for their loved ones, and learn things like honesty, modesty, and the varying degrees of each. (I) Really like Tillie's ability to work out crimes and recipes!"
The book includes Tillie's recipe for Pineapple Meringue Pie and a bonus short story, too.
