‘The Gardener’s Doll ‘ By Via Lyn

This story details the fall (but not the end) of a China Doll whose purpose is to tell a story crafted by the sea. After natural forces attempt to silence the Doll, she discovers how life continues after the storm; how sometimes we must wait on the side-lines to understand the “why,” and how being broken does not synonymize being worthless.
