*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.
