I love a collection of short stories, espcially a collection as diverse as this, each new tale a surprise from the last. In today’s busy world full of distractions from work and family, its a simple pleasure to read a story in full. Short stories give you this pleasure.
Fill the coffee pot and choose a story from this collection, just take a short break…. You won’t be dissapointed.
This collection of short stories is free to download from Amazon currently.
I like the way we are kept guessing until the end of the first story. The story glides through two sisters relationship, both desperate to rebuild it but hidden obstacles in their way. It doesn’t give much away, but the whole picture is painted beautifully between their feelings and love for one another, I especially like the medium Ellie tries to reach her sister through, something we writers can relate to…
The second short story full of vibrant descriptives illuminates a child’s innocence and is a lovely humourous account of honesty, I especially liked the way this story was written. There is a magic in how children’s honesty can open up a person and teach other adults a thing or two about connecting. Its nice to see the characters develop and open up because of this. Please check it out, there are only a few pages and it will only take you a short coffee break.
The third story is a real thought jerker, there are so many directions you could take from it depending on personal circumstances, it’s nice to have things left up to your own imagination, to have to read between the lines and try to make sense of the goings on.
I dont want to give too much away so I urge you download this book to your kindle or kindle app on your device/laptop … and let me know what you think and which your favourites were… My favourite – ‘Giraffe Spots’, a close second is ‘Cold’
David Burton is definitely an author to keep an eye on….
Please note I did not write this collection of short stories and all rights remain with David Burton the Author… I simply enjoyed, reviewed & shared the brilliance.
