Ten-year-old Bobby Smith, son of the local pharmacist and the host of the radio show "Neighbor Dorothy," grows to manhood in Elmwood, Missouri, observing the people and the changes that affect the small town in the decades after the end of World War II
Summary
As the story begins, it is 1945, the war is over, the American economy is booming, and there is no better place in the world than Elmwood Springs, Missouri. Ten-year-old Bobby Smith's father is the town pharmacist and his mother is a local radio personality. Over the next several decades, the plot expands to include numerous beguiling characters who interact with the Smith family--among them, the Oatman Family Southern Gospel Singers
