*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
This anthology has 15 short stories pertaining to motherhood and/or family. I would mark them as fiction or contemporary. There are some great illustrations in this, too. I have to admit, I think the illustrations are my favorite part.
Some Other Summer by Harriet Shaw ~ Young love and war.
Backfire by Sally Cade ~ Oops. That ended up with a much different result than intended.
Bear with me by Felicity Wilson ~ Wow. That’s actually depressing.
Midnight in Bombay by Sarah Nock ~ Um, okaaaaay.
The Creditor by Jon Ashbrook ~ Hmmm, something is fishy here.
Sa Bhaile by Laura Tilton ~ Well, better to know than be left wondering. But the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
Bandaranadah by Sarah Nock ~ My least favorite because I didn’t understand the point of it.
The Old Carpet by Miriam Moss ~ I know people who would do this.
A Matter of Maternity by Sally Cade ~ You can’t pick your family, but this is too much.
The Train by Sally Cade ~ Meh
Seasonal Greetings by Jon Ashbrook ~ Leopards and all that…
Excess of Loss by Neil A.T. Davidson ~ The world of stockbrokers.
Heavenly Pursuits by Harriet Shaw ~ Oooh...a paranormal one. Nice!
Easter Eggs and Redemption by Susan Aykin ~ How do you get over betrayal and hurt?
When the Dead Awaken by Sarah Nock ~ I don’t get this.
