The grandmother plot / by Cooney, Caroline B.,author.;
"Freddy leads a life of little responsibility, following his own meandering path. His only real attachment is to his memory-challenged grandmother, whose nursing home he regularly visits. His far-flung sisters may belittle his artistic ambitions, and his grandmother only occasionally knows who he is, but he can go with the flow. When another nursing home resident is murdered, though, Freddy panics. He can't take care of his grandmother alone, and a hiccup in his less-than-legal side business is causing extra complications-complications that could be deadly. To stay safe, he'll have to straighten up and face the music"--

Grandmothers at work : juggling families and jobs / by Harrington Meyer, Madonna,1959-;
Includes bibliographical references and index.Balancing care and work -- Joys and second chances -- Intensive grandmothering -- Juggling work and grandchildren -- Financial ebbs and flows -- Containing carework -- Emotional ups and downs -- Social and health pros and cons -- Conclusions: grandmothers at work."Young working mothers are not the only ones who are struggling to balance family life and careers. Many middle-aged American women face this dilemma as they provide routine childcare for their grandchildren while pursuing careers and trying to make ends meet. Employment among middle-aged women is at an all-time high. In the same way that women who reduce employment hours when raising their young children experience reductions in salary, savings, and public and private pensions, the mothers of those same women, as grandmothers, are rearranging hours to take care of their grandchildren, experiencing additional loss of salary and reduced old age pension accumulation. Madonna Harrington Meyer's Grandmothers at Work, based primarily on 48 in-depth interviews conducted in 2009-2012 with grandmothers who juggle working and minding their grandchildren, explores the strategies of, and impacts on, working grandmothers. While all of the grandmothers in Harrington Meyer's book are pleased to spend time with their grandchildren, many are readjusting work schedules, using vacation and sick leave time, gutting retirement accounts, and postponing retirement to care for grandchildren. Some simply want to do this; others do it in part because they have more security and flexibility on the job than their daughters do at their relatively new jobs. Many are sequential grandmothers, caring for one grandchild after the other as they are born, in very intensive forms of grandmothering. Some also report that they are putting off retirement out of economic necessity, in part due to the amount of financial help they are providing their grandchildren. Finally, some are also caring for their frail older parents or ailing spouses just as intensively. Most expect to continue feeling the pinch of paid and unpaid work for many years before their retirement. Grandmothers at Work provides a unique perspective on a phenomenon faced by millions of women in America today." -- Publisher's description.

My grandmother asked me to tell you she's sorry [electronic resource] : A Novel. by Backman, Fredrik.; Walker, Joan.;
Narrator: Joan Walker.From the author of the internationally bestselling A Man Called Ove, a charming, warmhearted novel about a young girl whose grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters, sending her on a journey that brings to life the world of her grandmother's fairy tales.Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy, standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-men-who-want-to-talk-about-Jesus-crazy. She is also Elsa's best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother's stories, in the Land of Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal. When Elsa's grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa's greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother's letters lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and totally ordinary old crones, but also to the truth about fairytales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other. My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman's internationally bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and an ode to one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 310774 KB).
