More About the Author

Lucy Bignall was born to British parents in Zambia and grew up in Africa and the Middle East.

She has three children, three cats, three chickens, one dog and one husband, not necessarily in that order.
Several of her stories have been published in online magazines and in anthologies and her short memoir, The House and the Mansion, was shortlisted for the Fish Memoir prize 2012.
Lucy has also written a brilliant novel and a full length memoir about her life in Liberia at the start of the civil war, both of which she is currently touting around agents and publishers, so watch this space....

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and unforgettable. 29 April 2012
By B. Lynn
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each of these short stories has a twist - but different enough that you're taken by surprise each time.

I thoroughly enjoyed each story; vivid writing, humour, emotion and mystery - I was sorry when I'd finished though the last one left me laughing. There is a lot of variety with stories set in cities, villages and countryside; Europe, Australia and Arabia - even online! I can't say much more without giving things away.

I'm looking forward to reading more in the future and hopefully some full novels, too.


The author is my sister, something I'm a bit reluctant to admit to because it seems like boasting. My review is entirely based on my enjoyment of the book and not on my relationship with the author (it really is a thoroughly enjoyable book) but I might have missed seeing the book if I hadn't been told it was available and I'm really really glad I didn't. I loved it.

Downloaded this for a laugh really, but what a surprise. A few stories about music - true. But many others on different themes.

Worked out the ending of every story, only to be put in my place by the author's quirky and cheeky imagination.

My favourites are the fly, the kitten and the witches. But every story is well written with some beautiful descriptive work.

Excellent and heartily recommended. Can't wait for her first novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of short stories 30 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This collection of short stories has prompted me to get the Kindle Reader for my Mac so now I can read books on the train in to work instead of e-mails!

Having in the past read a few of Lucy's short stories on her old blog site, I've found them very readable and absolutely gripping. I can now see myself missing getting off the train at my station...

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting read 16 Aug. 2013
By Sophie Richmond - Published on

I don't have much time for recreational reading, so this format of engrossing short stories with a unexpected twist suits me beautifully. Each story is a formidable gem, and i loved the unusual angle of involving music. Please keep writing!

This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys short stories and mysteries. Each is crafted in an elegant style, and the stories are diverse and entertaining - some as frothy as a mimosa on a summer's day, and others delightfully spine chilling, ironic or thought provoking in turn. I would definitely recommend this to take with you on vacation, to peruse on the metro/tube on the way to work, or to enjoy in front of a fire on a chill winter's evening.
