Each story and poem in this volume is a small treasure, as are the lovely old engravings portraying charity in action. Some acts of giving may appear simple -- such as one in which a tired and late-for-work Minneapolis nurse takes time out to help an elderly woman home on a wretchedly-cold evening. Others seem more complex -- as one in which a Colorado man takes on the role of opening up the life of a blind, deaf and mute girl encountered on a faraway island. In both these instances, and most others in this book, the giver receives back something unexpected and huge. Reading this book is a journey full of surprises, the greatest of which may be what you, the reader, discover about your own capacity to be generous.
