Gaynor’s story, A String of Beans, won first prize in the 2018 Tabor Open Stories of Life competition last year. Her story was about stumbling upon a church and then a church procession when on holiday in Italy.
Last year, the online Stories of Life community had a lot of fun with Gaynor’s story in the lead-up to our 2018 Stories of Life book launch. With no clue as to story or context, people tried to guess the missing word from one of Gaynor’s sentences:

Some of the suggestions were:
- ants evacuating a flood
- kids evacuating the house when chores need to be done
- men evacuating a chick-flick
