"Gifts is a profound lesson about the importance of knowing when to graciously accept someone's kind gestures. This short story is a tightly interwoven package of dialogue and narration that pulls you into it intellectually to fully understand the silent emotional energy being transmitted between the two main characters."
Joey Pinkney, Award-winning Author & Book Reviewer

"A beautiful short story."
—Priyanka Seth, Editor, Star Scribes

"Gifts" is slated to be adapted into a short film. I am having fun imagining my wish list for the music soundtrack. Thank you to Dame Judith Dench for BOTH of these songs after hearing her Desert Island Disc choices on the BBC show of the same name (and to my friend, Stephen in the U.K., who introduced me to this delightful, insightful program). Immediately, I thought of the couple, their relationship, their love story.

"All Right, Okay, You Win"
Count Basie & Joe Williams
From the album, "Count Basie At Newport"

"Losing My Mind" - Follies
From the 1971 Original Broadway Cast Recording
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim  

"Gifts" will become available to purchase in the future so read it for free now (plus other books using the Booktrack studio platform). The "Gifts" Booktrack eBook will remain free, as a giveaway, as a GIFT is meant to be with no attachments or expectations of any financial return or exchange. I hope you enjoy it!
