The Thirteenth Gift
While on assignment in Eastern Europe, Claire, a U.S. journalist, learns of a local legend. The deceptively simple story about “the thirteenth gift” has a profound affect on Claire, which soon transforms her marriage, her work, and the way she sees the world.
The Thirteenth Gift is both a cautionary tale and an inspirational fable as it shows a way through the perilous consequences of greed, arrogance, and abuse of power to an uplifted state of consciousness and community.
The Thirteenth Gift invites readers to renew their sense of wonderment, which can lead to freedom from fear and to a greater experience of hope, beauty, and joy in daily life.
Like the message of the award-winning bestseller The Twelve Gifts of Birth, this novella from Charlene reminds readers to see the dignity that is inherent in themselves and others.
