Today is a snow day here in Southwest Ontario. Everything is shut down, even the transit system! I just love these days of hibernation–a time that I can just sit down and catch up on my reading and reviewing.
This is a wonderful story that I picked up because of the title. I am always on the lookout for real life stories of people who struggle. And this book did not disappoint.
This book contains ten short stories. Each story explains individuals who have to make some difficult decisions. There are no superhero’s or supernatural forces. Each story is told from someone else’s perspective. So, the stories help the reader to understand the fears, doubts, and uncertainties that the individuals in the stories faced.
Further, each of the stories contain unique characters and settings. It makes each story a stand alone genius. Also, each story ends abruptly. Each story is an example of great story-telling!
I loved the book, and will be rereading the stories over Christmas.
Rating: 5 stars
