This Close - Stories

A collection of thirteen short stories written by Jessica Francis Kane

She picks topics so mundane and normal then turns them into a whirlwind of events.

About ordinary, quiet people, with the same hopes and dreams as everyone else but in different situations, making mountains out of mole hills.  

I totally enjoyed this book. Easy reading, nice style. Each story with its own message and lesson to tell.  From superstitions, as in "Next in Line" to relationships, emotions, family and the inner life and death struggles that now and again everyone faces, in their own unique fashion.  

You might relate and see yourself in these stories!

I'll give it four stars out of five.
