It's an unusual and powerful short story set in the American mid-west from an author we associate with mystery stories set in Greece. You don't always know what you're getting on Kindle Singles, but this one was certainly worth the money.

Pop, a man who his spent his life on the land, is dying now. He sits on the porch, watching the evening roll in and the butterflies settling on the plants and grasses, and he knows he's had enough. But his daughter Jennifer - a city girl who has come to look after him, is intent on keeping him alive for as long as possible - and certainly long enough for her husband to change her father's will.

But this evening doesn't go exactly to plan. The usual agency nurse doesn't turn up, and in her place is Rosita, an enigmatic Hispanic who seems oddly out of place. I can't say more without spoiling the resolution of the story, but it is wonderfully written and makes you aware of what Anne could do if she took a rest from writing Greek mysteries and tackled the contemporary novel instead.

Absolutely beautiful. Left me wanting more though. There was so much of interest in the short story that needed expanding on. I would have loved the story to continue.

This was a lovely short story but I feel it really could have turned in to something a bit more dramatic if it had been longer. It just started to get interesting when it finished. But if your into short storys its fine so only 3 stars

This was a delightful little story and surprisingly short. I was just getting into understanding the way of the so called nurse when the story ended. Quite a surprise but the book was very enjoyable.
