I read this thinking it meant to say grandmas, and laughed at the thought of grand am vehicles muttering in a tent, but @Melissa_J tells me grandam is actually an old fashioned word for grandmother. Live and learn!

Melissa_J It‘s probably not a typo, grandam is an old-fashioned word for grandmother 😊 8mo
ShyBookOwl @Melissa_J No way?! You learn something new every day. Thank you!! 😄 8mo
Melissa_J It pretty much translates to great lady. I rather like this old-fashioned version myself 😁 (of course, it could still very well be a typo, but one that just happens to fit!). 8mo
ShyBookOwl @Melissa_J Haha well I'm glad my ignorance led me to this fun fact 😊 8mo

• I hate this! In the context of this story, the name doesn‘t matter, of course, but it matters to my editor‘s brain. What is the woman‘s name, for goodness sake?! Could the editor not decide?! 😩 •
