Granny’s Stories by Margaret Henderson (Book Review #95)

This review is written for Online Book Club

“I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars.”

This book was an “ Book of the Day.”

This is an autobiography of Margaret Henderson. It is a combination of stories, travels, experiences she has encountered throughout her life. Margaret invites you into her world sharing her understandings, practices and everything in between.

Her stories come in chapters organized by date and location. The autobiography covers many years of traveling through countries and meeting various people. You also do feel welcomed into her world knowing how her personality was and how she treated people. All of the stories were interesting and did intrigue the reader.


Granny’s stories begin from 1954 where she is a nanny living in France. Margaret’s stories also encounter riding on a three-seat plane, mistakenly getting involved on a drug run and a few emotional re telling’s of her father.

This autobiography easily touches on historical references and contains funny, exciting, sensitive and scary stories. What it lacked was the connectivity. I did not feel as one with the book or felt anything close to attaching myself to Margaret.

From France to Berlin, Sudan and Scotland to East Africa, Malta, Zanzibar, Sweeten, Italy, Bulgaria, China, this Author has really traveled for a lifetime.

I recommend this book to anyone that likes to read nonfiction history books.
