My Rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This book of short stories made me smile and wonder and think. Just the thing short stories should do. I enjoyed the quirkiness of some of the characters. Some stories are so short and cute that I just had to smile. The princess with a tissue was one such story. I think that Joanne Van Leerdam has a poetic way of writing that comes naturally to her. Already a published poet this foray into speculative fiction was really a brilliant move.
Joanne Van Leerdam says a lot in a short amount of space. For a small book, this made a big impression on me. Not all had the ending I expected, which made it even better. The point was facing a new direction in life and each story complimented that premise.
If you love beautifully written short stories that show the characters as they face new opportunities and an unknown fuiture, then you will enjoy this well crafted book. The stories vary in size, but are all filled with wisdom and rich characters.
