The Forget ~ Me ~ Nots
Forget me not is a bitter sweet story of a daughters journey through her grief when she looses her mother.
Sarah Palmer and her sister have the sad job of sorting through their mothers personal effects after she dies. When Sarah is looking through her mother’s jewellery she discovers, tucked away, three little silver charms held together by a black ribbon. The date and name engraved on them are a mystery to her and her sister, so she searches within her family for an answer. Through doing this Sarah learns about a beautiful side to her mother that had remained hidden until her death.
Ginger Simpson highlights the pain of losing a loved one without the usual depressing overtures we see so often relating to death. In this short story she shows how grief can move us forward, instead of holding us back.
I really enjoyed reading Forget me Nots and I give it a 5 star rating.
