Publisher's Summary

It had been many years since Jemima Barlow entered into the front doors of her primary school.

Her heart leapt when she spotted a portrait of her first grade teacher, Miss Kravitz, hanging on the wall beside the school's namesake, Sarah Swain.

Her shifty eyes and sinister smile seemed to taunt Jemima, awakening a nightmare from long ago...but then, the lovely Miss Granizo came to mind...

Originally titled, Even a Beautiful Swan, this short story placed 1st in the 2015 Midwest Writer’s Guild annual contest.

The Lovely Miss Granizo

I really enjoyed this short story. A lot happened in such a short tine and the author did a good job of putting in a lot of details. Love all her descriptive words! The narrator was good at changing her voice for the different characters. I would reccythis to others.

Had to Listen Again and Again!

I loved this story. The characters are so vividly described and I was completely caught up in this tale of how we have the power to change people’s lives - for better or worse - by such simple words and actions. LeAnn is such a gifted writer and I do not think she could have found a better narrator than Emma Stansfield. She made the story come to life. Great for grade-schoolers through adults!

Cute and emotional childhood recollection.

The Lovely Miss Granizo: A Short Story Audible Audiobook – Unabridged

by LeAnn L. Morgan

Narrated by Emma Stansfield

I received a complimentary copy and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Jemima Barlow attended art evening classes at her old primary school. Although no longer a primary school anymore. Those days history. The portraits of the teachers remained on the walls, assuming pride of place as if to still welcome visitors. For Jemima, the portrait of one schoolmistress, Miss Kravitz, was a dreaded ghostly reminder of the past.

Poor Jemima didn’t have an easy childhood, in more ways than one, but despite everything, she still held dear the pleasant memories of one special teacher that made all the difference.

On entering year 7, Jemima met “ the lovely Miss Granizo “, who held a natural ability to make every child feel unique. Jemima finally felt she had a reason to be at school. Looking back on our childhood, we can recall at least one teacher who awakened the passion for a certain subject. Miss Granizo held that tender place in Jemima’s heart. I thank LeAnn L. Morgan for awakening my memories of a few of my tutors, who I recall with fondness.

Emma Stanford produces a wonderful aura to the story by narrating the audio version. She verbally acts out the pages, producing the perfect image of the events as they unfold. She expresses the details that carry us on a poignant journey through Jemima’s childhood experiences, through to a satisfactory conclusion.

A cute emotional story, short it may be, but worth the read or listen.

I rate The Lovely Miss Granizo 5 out of 5 stars

Growth & Perceptions

This was my first experience with LeAnn L Morgan's work and it was delightful. This was an endearing tale of how one person's actions can change another's perceptions and influence one's growth. I enjoyed the short story and I recommend it to others. Emma Stansfield's narration was lovely. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.
