Nana’s Gift

and The Red Geranium

by Jeanette Oke


Price: £9.99
Publisher:Hendrickson from Alban Books
Published:27 April 2011
Two short stories first published in 1996 and 1995 respectively, by Bethany House Publishers.
Nana’s Gift is a heart warming tale of a lifetime of loving between a couple, and the husbands gift of a real pearl necklace, the result of scrimping and saving against all odds, to show his love and appreciation of his wife.
When she is widowed the pearls remain as a treasured memory of that love which Lizzie shares with her daughters and one particular granddaughter in a special way.
The Red Geranium is quite a short story, but equally poignant, about a small boy and his grandmother now living in a Home instead of the house he knew so well.
This little book would make an ideal present for anyone who loves short stories.
