Georgia has been reading Love, Loss and Life in Between Suzanne Rogerson
Love, Loss and Life in Between is a short book made up of around ten short stories. I read it over one day.
Spirit Song is thoughtful with a lovely ending. Goodbye Forever a suspenseful telling of a woman and her son trying to escape an abusive partner. Garden Therapy tells the story of a woman trying to work her way through her guilt and has a nice twist in it. Starting Over shows us a woman revisiting the past and an opportunity missed. A Cat-Shaped Hole is a super story of a lonely woman finding a new friend. The Phone Call was a bit creepy. First a reluctant meeting with a medium, then they phone calls… Knocked Off Her Feet shows how fate can change everything. And Catalyst has such an intriguing opening and a terrifically brutal outcome. Not Just for Christmas a heart-warming tale for all dog lovers out there. A Mermaid’s Tail is a sad read and offers a glimpse into past events that have shaped characters’ lives in The Mermaid Hotel Romance Series. The last piece is an excerpt of a fantasy short story – The Guardian – and is continued in a fantasy short story collection.
Rogerson writes very well and these tales are concise yet descriptive. I liked the fact they were a mix of genre so interesting and each one very different.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend to everyone who enjoys well-told short stories.
This collection of short stories gives a glimpse into life, love, loss, and the inexplicable in between.
Including themes of grief, finding hope and second chances, facing the consequences of your actions and getting help from the unlikeliest of places.
