IRIS by Nancy Springer_Review

Review of Iris by Nancy Springer
5 Stars

“Iris” is a sad but winning story, which left me with the kind of lingering feeling I get from reading O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi.” The narrator is a solitary elderly lady, who lost daughter Iris in an accident at age seven, lost her husband when he was only fifty-four, and now has given up on knickknacks, memories, and Christmas. But some inexplicable impulse makes her take up “collecting,” and via that impulse, she finds true Christmas happiness-and hope.

I reviewed an e-book copy from the publisher, Untreed Reads, via Goodreads Group Making Connections.
