"A Little Bit of Love" by Pat Hopper. Little Beverley goes to her Nanna's for tea. Your mince pies are the best. Better are the ones in the shop. 'So they should be, they are made with a lot of mincemeat, and a little bit of love'.
Some years later, after a stroke Nanna knows she will never leave the Nursing Home and return to her own home. But her son and family have other ideas, and it is now Beverley's turn to bake mince pies with a little bit of love for her grandparent. "Where John is" by Judith Mundy Similar in context to the one above, but entirely different in style, in this story the daughter cannot give her mother a home.
The author explores the thoughts of an elderly widow as she recalls her life with her husband and family, and the memories her home holds: the place Where John Is. Before her daughter arrives she finds peace in death. A gentle story that empathizes with the daughter's as well as the widow's situations. This is a happy ending with a difference."Micky" by Joan Stanley. Billy is a young lad who loves animals, but he lives in a flat in London.
