“Twentyone Olive Trees by Laura Formentini truly captured my heart. As a mom who has battled grief with the loss of my own son, I found Laura’s poems to bring comfort and understanding – and her stories to bring a sense of calmness and connection. Fiction stories are such a wonderful way to offer healing – bringing the reader on a journey to safely feel emotions and offer growth along the way. 21 Olive Trees gives you this experience in such a beautiful way. I highly recommend!”
As you can see, Doris is a reluctant hero. She didn’t believe that there were such terrible creatures in the world and that the bad things that the fairies talked about could actually occur. She doubts and doesn’t want to be the one to do something about it because that meant the small fairies living in her huge home would discover it was messier than most, and that her kitchen appliances and artwork were out of date.
