The Route by Gale Sears

The Route by Gale Sears

This little gem of a book is close to my heart, as it's a story about Gale's two year experience as a Meals-On-Wheels volunteer. As Bob and I have been on the MOW program for two years, I was able to see things from a different perspective. In this story, Carol has twelve people she needs to deliver meals to each Thursday. We get five different people delivering our meals each weekday, with a frozen meal delivered on Friday for the weekend and the first Monday of the month. Carol learns to lov e each of her twelve people. They each are different with different problems to handle. There's Goldie, the sunshine lady, always waving at Carol; LaRue, the cranky woman; Mary, the comic in thick glasses; Elaine, the recluse; Bea, the elegant owner of antiques; Olea,the wheelchair sweetheart; M axine, the gra ce ful missing person; Ladora, the dime-store aficionado; Lucille/Betty, mother-daughter duo; Joyce, Ol Jane; Viola, the ornery stylista of the Airstream; Tom, the Last Emporer of China; Russell, Santa Claus; Althia, the voracious reader; Elsie, the lost and lonely one. Carol would go for weeks, even months before having a change in clients. This little gem would make a great Hallmark film.
