Dearest Dorothy, Are We There Yet?

Welcome to Partonville: Book One

Welcome to Partonville, #1

“In a sea of CBA heroines who are unfailingly young and beautiful, readers identify with Dorothy, the plucky 80-something grandma who’s a demon at the wheel. Baby, you can drive our car.” —Publishers Weekly

In celebration of life’s simple pleasures, Charlene Ann Baumbich introduces readers to the pastoral Illinois town of Partonville, as well as the farm on its outskirts where eighty-seven-year-old Dorothy Wetstra resides, driving around in her ’76 Lincoln Continental—affectionately dubbed “The Tank”—playing bunco with her pals, and grabbing a stool at Harry’s counter, where she can stay on top of the town’s latest shenanigans, most of which she is responsible for.

But when a visitor comes to town with a proposition, Dorothy finds herself faced with a decision that could change her beloved town, and her life. Before long, her gift for shaking things up may come in handy.
