Two historical short stories for the holiday season
The Grayton Family Christmas Supper Contest by Charmaine Pauls
Nobody truly knows what happened the Christmas of 1910 in the small town of Grayton, South Africa. What is for sure, is that people until today still talk about the scandalous event that grew into one of the country’s biggest annual food festivals.
A Son For Christmas by Nancy Pirri
Cattle driver, Cane Smith arrives in Bozeman, Montana, released after serving seven years in a Texas prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Living behind bars has changed him, especially when he discovers he’s a father. Now, Cane has been exonerated of the crime and intends to claim his son, born of a prostitute with whom he’d loved, before being incarcerated. As an infant, the boy had been adopted by rancher, Tom Callahan.
Tom can’t fault Cane for wanting to claim his son, but has his own daughter, Annie, to deal with. She’s helped her father raise the boy she named Mark. After all this time, she can’t give him up. He’s a Callahan.
Cane, who’s been longing for a love and home of his own, has a solution: Miss Annie will have to marry him if she wants to keep Mark in her life. Annie will do anything to keep the boy with her—but can she live with the hard, rough Cane Smith?
