Description - Blackberries in the Dark by Mavis Jukes

Austin's summers at his grandparents' farm were full of family traditions. He and his grandfather loved to go fishing. Or they would pick blackberries in the dark and eat them for dinner. And this summer, Grandpa was going to teach Austin fly-fishing. Now Grandma is alone on the farm, and everything feels different. But with a string of broken beads and a spur-of-the-moment fishing trip, Austin and his grandmother learn how to keep their memories of Grandpa alive - and begin some new traditions of their own.
