From the Publisher

Eighteen selected short stories from both sides of the Atlantic. They are all about people who came upon wealth of some kind. Ideal reading for those with a powerful envious disposition. (If you don't know whether you are envious, read the book and find out!)
Some of the story lines: a homeless Chicago drunk gets help from Grandma; a boy in the London Blitz finds a special tin box; a New Orleans family shelters from Hurricane Katrina; a soldier returns to North Carolina from the Gulf War; an old blind Dutch poet writes his last poem; an Eton schoolboy sings for Queen Victoria; a mother superior's parcel is a nude painting; two strangers win the lotto and reap disaster; trading in the 1720 South Sea Bubble; a Manhattan priest learns about an old vagrant; a ghost is discovered in a boat on the river Thames; an Egyptian baker meets the challenge of a revolution; a strange tale of love in an American hospital.
These and more are the fascinating material the Author of Found Money weaves into great stories.
