These stories, some of which feature the little-known Welsh Jewish community, are well-written and provide an insight into the lives of their characters. These short stories focus on the emotional lives of the characters, and on insights that they achieve within the span of the story. Each story stands on its own merit, and provides an American reader with many common and familiar topics, such as achieving balance between work and family, or between the needs of the protagonist, and the demands of family. However, these stories do also provide an insight into urban Welsh life, and in some cases into the lives of those within the presumably small Jewish community in Wales. These stories merit a wider readership in the United States, and one hopes for further such stories from this author.
