True Stories of Giving and Receiving
A True Princess pg 106
Each story and poem in this volume is a small treasure, as are the lovely old engravings portraying charity in action. Some acts of giving may appear simple — such as one in which a tired and late-for-work Minneapolis nurse takes time out to help an elderly woman home on a wretchedly-cold evening. Others seem more complex — as one in which a Colorado man takes on the role of opening up the life of a blind, deaf and mute girl encountered on a faraway island. In both these instances and most others in this book, the giver receives back something unexpected and huge.
