This short story by Bruce Buckingham takes place in Vero Beach, Florida, home to world famous Indian River citrus. It's the story of a 10-year-old boy helping his grandfather as they struggle against a rare freeze that threatens the old man's beloved orange grove. It is a story of their struggle against nature, and a struggle to find love and acceptance between an old man and his grandson.
Bruce Buckingham is a collector of stories - his own. He loves taking his own real-life experiences and weaving them into fictional (and sometimes not-so-fictional) tales. In this series of short stories, written over many years, Buckingham intertwines intriguing, true-to-life characters with believable, real-life situations - or sometimes, with situations that stretch the boundaries of reality. His imagination knows no limits.
