Publisher's Summary

Harmless, a bit lonely. Gray long hair, silver sneakers. Beth Carmichael's name raises both eyebrows and respect in the right circles. Only a select few know that grandma Beth, a legendary martial arts sensei in karate, aikido, jujitsu, and krav maga, pounds Manhattan pavement while leaning on a sword cane. To the inexperienced eye of homeless Josh, she's an easy target for a quick hustle. Hear Beth ply her magic as Josh finds the error of his ways.

I absolutely loved it!

Would you listen to The Crone Who Leaned on a Sword Cane again? Why?

Yes I would definitely listen to this story again! I loved the characters and felt as if I was there watching the whole story play out. It could definitely be quite a bit longer because I just have to know how their first year together went! I would recommend this for a captivating quick read!

A very nice feel good story!

I came across this when looking for something not too long for my commute. A very nice fell good story. The writing and the narration were both very well done. It did end with me wanting to know more of the story. I just got Past Lives: Crone World 2 and am really looking forward to listening to more of this story.
