A Gift Of Love

A Gift Of Love
Wendy Stone
Eternal Press
Ebook 49 pages

Danielle wears old clothes her sisters give her and lives in terror of her stepbrother David. She accepts the work she is given but is made unhappy by her family’s unkindness. Then her stepmother sells her to Lord Christopher St. John. He wants her for his bride but he is horribly disfigured. On the eve of her wedding David attempts to rape her but his mother prevents this because she belongs to the lord. Now perhaps Danielle has a chance for a better life but will her family allow it?

This beauty and the beast tale is a tender love story. One of the best shorts I’ve read in a while and another excellent story from a talented author. 4.5 red roses, Morna
