Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from it was like being forced to read into the middle of a book with no background info... These stories felt more like snippets from a book than their own individual tale with lots of important details missing like: where did these characters come from & what was their purpose? I was left baffled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Companion Perfect book for travelling as the short stories can be completed on the go. You hit the jackpot if a story relates to a town-country matching your travels......fabulously fortuitous for me!
