Kindred Souls

Written by Patricia MacLachlan

Ten-year-old Jake has always been close to his grandfather Billy, so close that Jake's mother calls them kindred souls. Each morning, Jake and Billy take a walk around the family farm. Billy often tells Jake stories of living in a sod house on the prairie. When Billy goes into the hospital, Jake decides the best gift he can give his beloved grandfather is a sod house where can live out his last days.
