Powerful and Heartbreaking

The Little Match Girl - Hans Christian Andersen, Rachel Isadora

It is cold.
New Year's Eve.
A small, poor girl tries to sell matches in the street.
Already shivering from cold and early hypothermia.
Afraid to go home because her father will beat her for not selling any matches...
There is no mother anymore.
All of the sudden something happen...
This is one the most beautiful, heartbreaking and sad tales I have ever read.
This story is so sad and heartbreaking.
