A Walk In The Woods
Margaret Lake is one of my favorite authors, so I am predisposed to like her work.
I started to appreciate her writing with her Historical Romances. Because I really like historical novels.
But Margaret also has been writing these little Gems - stories about people told mostly from a female's point-of-view. Most of the stories are in the past - like the beach tale during perhaps World War 2. But most of the time the period really doesn't matter. Margaret manages to evoke a "feeling" that is just right. Again I would mention the NJ shore tale.
But these are stories about people who have issues - other than how to get past the wyvern in the current World of Warcraft session. They are dealing with other people (how quaint).
So let me discuss these stories:
A Walk In The Woods - Yeah you just gotta read Matthias' story for yourself.
Sweet Savage Charity - I read this novelette before. And I must say that it reminds us what a woman's lot was in the days of the Puritan settlements in the New World. And we meet Charity, who you are just going to love.
Grindel's Tale - There is more waiting in the woods for Megan than just pretty trees.
Only In My Dreams - Another Novelette and one that I had also read before. So re-reading this story was to visit an old friend, because you can't help but like Delia - trust me.
Sir Dragonbreath - An endearing story of two souls meant for each other.
Of Love And War - Now this is the Novelette about the NJ shore that I spoke about in the first paragraphs. You cannot get more "real" than this. And with a surprise ending that will make everyone happy.
A Slice of Life - Now I thought that Delia was my favorite Margaret Lake short fiction character. But now it is Gracie. I would love to describe her change from shy to not-shy. And why. But that is what the story is about. Ms. Lake has crafted another delightful person.
Get the book.
Read it - you WILL enjoy it.
I'm usually not a big fan of short stories: by the time I've developed any feeling for the characters, the story is usually over. Not this time. This author has a talent for giving a quick sketch that somehow seems complete, by using the right details and filling in the right blanks. I'm happy I bought this one!
Certainly found it in this book. Very interesting and
and sometimes a bit risque stories. I really enjoyed
them all, some more, some less, but a recommended
read for adults.
