Short Story of The Week #22: The Hardest, Kindest Gift

Story Title: The Hardest, Kindest Gift
From: Half Human
Author: Bruce Corville


Prompted by a story told by his dying father, a man seeks to find the greatest gift for his ancestor.

Favorite Line

"Whether or not there are things that should not be known, there are things that should not be said, words that once they poison the air can never be taken back, but hang like a curtain of venom between you and the one you love."

My Thoughts

I didn't know this story was going to be so good. The best part about it was the mystery. It kept me guessing all the way through, and didn't give anything away until the very end. I also loved the imagery in it. It was a wonderful mythological tale, and a beautiful read.
