She Laughs Last: An Orphan Dreamer Short Story
Date: March 2020
Duration: 0 hours 37 minutes
Her family was to be her legacy until an angry mob murdered her only son.
North Carolina farm owner Gertrude Smith had dreamed of leaving a legacy—raising hardworking and socially-conscious children who would parent her grandchildren to become people who would change the world for the better. But hope faded when her unmarried son died tragically in the racially charged 1960s—then completely vanished when her only surviving child, a daughter, remained childless after marriage for twenty years.
That is, until Gertrude received a phone call from her forty-year-old daughter: “Momma, next summer you’re going to become a grandmother! And not to just any baby—but one with a divine mission.”
A special child.
A baby girl.
But will another tragedy strike and bury Gertrude’s dreams for an eternity, taking with it the seedling of her legacy, erasing the stories of her ancestors, and stopping a quiet Southern woman from leaving her mark on America—and maybe even the world?
