One Last Gift to Go (Annie Acorn’s Christmas Shorts Book 1)

Children aren’t the same as kittens, as Miss Mary Mason is reminded when she volunteers to keep two orphans in her home through Christmas.  Ragged and dirty with bad manners, these children certainly leave much to be desired.  Still, Mary perseveres, unwilling to return them to a system that can’t possibly meet their needs, but then, valuable items begin to go missing and ugly truths are revealed.

Set in the post-war 1940s, lost loves and family memories intertwine as this rich story unfolds.  You won’t want to miss this remarkable tale of the far-reaching power of love from internationally read author Annie Acorn!
