Editorial Reviews

From the Author

2017 is the one hundred fiftieth birthday of Canada's Confederation and our local writing/critiquing group decided it would be fun to do an anthology to celebrate.
My contribution, My Baby Wrote Me A Letter, stems from a news segment I watched. A woman bought an old desk at a yard sale. After bringing it home she began the process of refinishing the wood and happened to find a letter taped to the back of a drawer.
When she read the message, she realized the note could be important to someone, and with little more than a faded name to go on, began a search for the writer of the mysterious letter.
It was placing a picture on Facebook that led to the son of the man who had written that long ago message to his family. He had recently been diagnosed with cancer and feared he would never survive to see his children grow, so he wrote them a letter from the heart.
The news story had a happy ending; the man survived the cancer and lived not only to see his children to adulthood, but several of his grandchildren as well.

His story was an inspiration to me,
Jacquie

From the Inside Flap

A crinkled envelope drifted to the floor. Grace crouched to pick it up, turning the yellowed paper curiously in her hands. She could clearly see a Canadian stamp in the right-hand corner and a faded address on the front.
She used the arm of his wheelchair to stand. "What is this, Dad?"
He glanced up from his perusal of the drawer, his expression faraway. "Hmm?"
Grace passed over the envelope. "I think this was lodged in the back of the drawer."
He squinted at the address on the front and paled. His fingers started to tremble and he looked up at her with tears in his eyes.
Scared, and not knowing why, she grasped his bony shoulder. "Daddy, what is it? What's wrong?"
He shook his head and stared at the tattered envelope. "I can't believe it," he said.
"What,"she demanded, sensing her life was once more about to change though she didn't know how.
He held the letter for her to see. "This is your mother's handwriting."
