Reading through the first story was like reading through a first draft of a book, and one I would have expected from a beginner. This first tale, about an antique doll, wastes a great deal of time on ordinary "everyday speech" dialogue rather than having anything happen--i.e., "How are you?" "Oh, I'm okay." "Are you going to the store now?" and such. The story is dull, the characters all sound the same, the heroine has no drive whatsoever, the spiritual element is preachy--and the ending is completely predictable. I stuck with it anyway, hoping it would get better. It never did.
The second story in this collection--about some antique fishing lures--unfortunately, isn't any better than the first. The two main characters are supposed to be grown young women, but their speech, their reactions, and their emotions sound more like 12-year-olds. And yes, I say the "two main characters" because in my mind they're indistinguishable one from the other. Nothing stands out about either of them; they talk the same, they react the same, they're interchangeable. Nothing memorable about 'em...and so I let them go, along with my hopes for the rest of the book.
In short...this is a sleeper, not a keeper.
