5.0 out of 5 stars A Jubilee Tribute!, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jubilee Violin: Short Stories (Quick coffee break read Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
This book is a series of three short stories :

Jubilee Violin - a short story perfectly coinciding with the Queen's Jubilee Year and Celebrations in which an old lady, Ethyl watches her once much loved violin being played by a young girl Laura at a Royal performance and the pride and emotion that sets off.

Turning Point - is about a teacher and young mother and the strains/stress of coping with the job and raising a young child. She has to leave her little one with a nanny each morning to go and teach and the wrench she experiences resulting in her questioning her decision.

Doll's House - is a much darker story and deals with 'don't wish on someone what you wouldn't wish on yourself'. It also deals with the tragic consequences of telling an untruth to a child to placate and settle them.

All three stories are wonderful. My favourite was the last one, because of the surprise twist at the end. I've noticed with Jenny she always leaves the best till last. As for the second story, like most mums I can completely understand the stress, wrench and guilt Sally must feel about leaving Adam to a so called dubious Nanny. It's clear from the ending to me anyway what decision she makes! I found the class scene the most humourous, the 'Ready Brek' reference to the homework was quite funny! :) Also lets not forget the first story was a must as a tribute to the Jubilee Year of 2012.

The whole book can be read in half an hour or less and is perfect for that bus/train journey or when waiting for something or for those just wanting to read something they know they can finish in one sitting.!

This is a lovely book and Jenny is a very talented author!
