“Mother’s Smile”

Mother’s Smile by Michael Burch There never was a fonder smile than mother’s smile, no softer touch than mother’s touch.

Maybe I’m just one of those people who as my mother would say won’t take telling but I want to try this again. This being an Antigua and Barbuda Readers Choice Book of the Year thingamajigee.

Hell, we don’t have any other kind of book award and there was a time when we weren’t producing enough books to merit one.
