Hey Kali has mom finished reading this story of Pioneer life in the Rockies yet? I don’t think so Shoko. She must be pretty close though. Do you like it? Naw! They certainly were mean to animals way back in the 1800’s. I don’t think they thought of animals as having a family and loving their children and spouse. It was wham, bam….,”We can get $15 for this pelt.” It makes my fur bristle.” I heard from Ling-Ling the other day and Elaine Faber has written another book involving that kooky lady, Mrs. Odboddy. You mean the , shall we say, the character type lady with chickens in her house? MOL Ya that’s her! She’s a lot of fun. Mom could take some lessons from her and start looking for spies….wouldn’t that be fun? I don’t think so Shoks…..mom’s not that dingy…yet. Besides who’d feed us while mom is busy chasing spies and foiling plots against the government? Never thought of that Kali. Guess you’ve got a great point. She needs to change the kit lit and wash my bedding and clean up when we eat too much grass and barf on HER bedding.
So what’s this story called Shoko? It’s called Mrs. Odboddy Undercover Courier. Did Ling-Ling mention what it was about Shoko? Ling-Ling sure is a sweetheart and so pretty too. Cut it out Shoko…she looks just like you, a well cared for Seal Point Siamese cat. Get on with the story sisteh! Ling-Ling gave me a segment of the story so peeps could get some idea what it is about.
It’s 1943 and Agnes and Katherine are preparing to accompany Mrs. Roosevelt on her Pacific Island tour. Agnes carries a package from Colonel Farthingworth to President Roosevelt in Washington, D.C. Convinced the package contains secret war documents, Agnes expects Nazi spies to try and derail her mission, but she is determined to protect the package and put it into the President’s hand, whatever the cost.
Before leaving town, however, she has to find a place for those gol-darned four bantam roosters–- Myrtle, Sofia, Mrs. Whistlemeyer and Mildred!
Agnes and Katherine travel by train to Washington, D.C. Along the way, she meets Irving, whose wife mysteriously disappears from the train; Nanny, the unfeeling caregiver to little Madeline; two black soldiers bound for the Tuskegee airbase to train as pilots, and Charles, the WWII veteran with PTSD who lends Agnes an unexpected helping hand when things go exceedingly wrong. Who should Agnes trust? Who is the Nazi spy? Is there even a Nazi spy or is it all in Agnes’s imagination?
In a final near deadly showdown In Washington, D.C., Agnes faces a formidable challenge and is forced to accept the possibility that she isn’t the hometown warrior she always thought she was.
Can Agnes overcome multiple obstacles, deliver the package to the President and still meet Mrs. Roosevelt’s plane before she leaves for the Pacific Islands? If you’ve read Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot, you’ll know that she will do everything in her power as the scourge of the underworld she thinks she should be.
Ohh…the book sounds exciting Shoko! Can mom get it for her Kindle? Fur sure Kali. The book came out last Thursday in paperback and e-book.
Ling-Ling said Elaine wants to know if you enjoyed Mrs. Odboddy Hometown Patriot? Would you like to see more of her adventures? So let us know my friends.
