"Daffodils" by Elizabeth Bowen

It's spring at last! So Miss Murcheson buys some daffodils from the flower-man and sets this brisk tale in motion. Read by Denise Donnelly.

Born at the end of the nineteenth century in Ireland but thoroughly English in ancestry, Elizabeth Bowen wrote many, many short stories between novels such as The Last September and Eva Trout. (Or maybe we should say she wrote novels between her many short stories.)

Denise Donnelly is a writer of both fiction and non-fiction; her journalism includes Falcon's Cry, a book she co-authored with her brother about Gulf War Syndrome.
