The Passover Surprise ~
In The Passover Surprise, a young Jewish girl named Lisa gets very upset when her father Harvey plays favorites and gives a stamp album to her younger brother. She feels strongly that she equally deserves the album. Eventually, Lisa calmly talks to Harvey about her problem and they become closer. The story, set around 1960, includes details about her father’s experiences as a soldier during World War II that are based on my own father’s years in the Army.
