Like their book 'Life is not a bed of roses', Elizabeth Ducie & Sharon Cook's collection of short stories cover the gamut of human emotion.
Each story is carefully crafted and well written, they quickly bring the reader into their character's worlds; the charity shop worker who reluctantly repairs a quilt, the politician whose moment of glory fall to fate, or the woman who reflects on her children as they grow. Some of the stories have a twist, others are poignant, but all great reads.
This a short book, but well worth the price. A wonderful way to spend a coffee break.
