Excerpt from GIFTS: Bittersweet Christmas Stories by David Hogan

From “Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White” by David Hogan:

“It’s because of this spark that Mary called her brother, Brendan, back to Boston just before Christmas when he’d have preferred to be with his own family. It’s because of this spark that Brendan is now gathering leaves on this grey and bitter December morning. Today will be their final gift as children, a Christmas gift of sorts, and there will be the leaves and an unknown woman and water and a window.”
