March 20 – June 20, 2010

This is the “Spring into Short Stories” challenge. The goal is to read some of those short stories many of us have gathering wool on our shelves or downloaded on our computers, such as the many I personally have saved.

The stories can be included within an anthology or stand alone.
Here are the rules:
1. The story must be less than 50 pages.
2. The story can be any genre.
That’s pretty simple, isn’t it? So, as you can see, there isn’t a lot of work to this challenge.
Anyone who wishes to participate must sign up by March 19 to be eligible for the prize drawing. However, you can join in at any time during the challenge.
Here’s how to get started:
1. Become a follower of this blog.
2. Add a comment to the sign-up post letting me know you’re participating.
Once you begin reading your stories, do a short review on your own blog, then add a comment and link at the end of the post here under the appropriate week.
For those who would like to participate but don’t have a blog, you can leave a short review here.

Do visit LuAnn’s blog for more info and post you reviews!

This week’s story is ~~

A Golden Wedding by Lucy Maud Montgomery (from the collection Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories, 1909 to 1922)
It is again one of those feel good short stories that Montgomery had becomes famous for. Anything I say about the story will be like giving away too much. It is not an extraordinary story…but it is a simple tale of love. Love for someone who cared for you when there was no one and the feeling that comes with it. The want to make things right for the people who matter the most and if that means losing all you have…then so be it. 
This is why I love her stories, she never fails to bring a smile and the feeling of love that touches the heart.
