Today’s team review is from Jenny R
Jenny has been reading Silent Night by Wendy Clarke
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Full of short stories which are easy to read, each and every one of them well written. The theme is Christmas and includes the stress, fun, excitement and endearing moments that all come with the festive period. I am sure that we are all able to relate to the situations in every composition that Wendy Clarke writes about in this book.
It made a delightful change to be able to pick up a book and read a whole story in 10-20 minutes. This is a book that you are able to fit in with household chores, coffee breaks at work, on the daily commute or simply when you have a little free time.
Every festive tale in the book is different. They range from endearing, sad, funny and inspiring. It is such a marvellous idea to write a book with a variety of short stories.
I recommend this book completely
