My Favourite Short Story-4 : 'The Gift of the Magi' by O.Henry

This charming tale of love and mutual sacrifice of husband and wife is one of my favourites. Actually, this is the first story of O.Henry I read. This prompted me to read his other stories. A thoroughly enjoyable story in today's troubled times and broken homes. I induced my daughter to do a comparative study of 'The Gift of the Magi by O.Henry' and 'Where Love is, God is' by Leo Tolstoy for her M.A.dissertation.
