Flower/story challenge. Day 3

[Day 3 of seven]

Yesterday I mentioned three characteristics of short stories: character, plot, setting. There is a fourth characteristic: theme – that is, what the story is about.

Today’s challenge focuses on theme.

The setting is rural Australia in 1946 as the world settles down after a few years of turmoil.

The characters are in their 40s, married to each other, with one child.

The theme is forgiveness.

Too many boundaries for a 60-70 word story? See how you go!
