The boy remembers all the fine times he had at his grandfather's dairy farm - how the two of them would walk to the barn and the grandfather would regale him with interesting tidbits - and he wants his grandfather to feel the same excitement and pleasure in his new home, an island [Grosse Ile] in the Detroit River. . . The boy is a masterful psychological strategist, gently nudging his grandfather toward joy in his new surroundings, yet never demanding a commitment. Gradually, quietly, as befits San Souci's elegant winter-spare landscapes, the grandfather discovers a new life - often through the boy's associating various elements of the island with the dairy farm. It is a subtle drift, and all the better for it, as the boy, the grandfather, and the island home meld into a give-and-take that marks a fruitful, abiding relationship."
