Two siblings from the city are extremely disappointed when they realize they will be spending the summer days with their great grandparents in the country while their parents work. Since their mother spent her childhood summers in Covenant Creek with Granddaddy Meek and Mama D, she is sure it will be a great adventure and a wonderful learning experience for her children. However, being stuck in the middle of nowhere with no other children and no WIFI seems more like punishment to them, but that’s not even the worst part! They are terrified of their gruff Granddaddy Meek, who walks with a mysterious limp and doesn’t seem to want them around.
Surprisingly, their first day begins better than they anticipate. They enjoy a big breakfast and a short Bible lesson with Mama D and then explore the woods, but soon Brennan and Addison find themselves in a scary situation when Granddaddy Meek startles them as they are snooping through a cedar chest in his closet.
Fully expecting him to be angry and give them a piece of his mind, he actually does the opposite. He patiently pulls up a chair and gives them a piece of history as he explains how some of the items in the chest relate to his time in WWII while others represent our American symbols.
Their view of their grumpy Granddaddy Meek is forever changed once he takes the time to teach and they willingly take the time to listen. They realize spending the summer with a real American hero might not be so bad after all.
