The Basket of Flowers

The Basket of Flowers: An Introduction

A wonderful and short story for this month of Thanksgiving! The subtitle says, “A Tale for the Young” but I’d say this is a story for ALL ages. I can’t wait to read this aloud to Lydia (and Aaron too!)

I don’t want to give away too much of the story, Lamplighter sums it up like this:

James, the king’s gardener, teaches his 15-year-old daughter Mary all the principles of godliness through his flowers. She is falsely accused of stealing, and the penalty is death. Mary remembers her father had taught her: that it is better to die for the truth than to live for a lie, and that the worst pillow to sleep on is the pillow of a guilty conscience! This story will change your life forever!
