“GIFTS OF THE HEART ARE ALWAYS GOLDEN”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Maxine Billings
Little Joseph has a dilemma! His grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary is just around the corner, and he has no idea what to get them. As everyone starts preparing for the special occasion, Joseph and his dad take a trip to Gram’s and Big Papa’s in an effort for Joseph to get some ideas about what he can give them.
As with all of her books, Ms. Turner vividly paints the story with well-crafted flecks of humor and inspiration. Not only do her characters seem to be right in front of you as they live out their lives, but you feel so much a part of their story. You smell and taste the delicious food they prepare, and you laugh along with them. You can’t help but fall in love with little Joseph and his close-knit family.
The big day finally arrives. When Joseph sees all the expensive, store-bought gifts everyone else gives his grandparents, he suddenly becomes embarrassed about his gifts and does not want them to open them. His excitement turns to anxiety. This story will teach young ones (and old), as Big Papa says, “Gifts of the heart are always golden.”

Little did I know they all would play an important part in my life years later.” Today, J. Hale Turner continues to write stories for her readers of all ages.
