I have read "Unexpected Love & Other Stories" finding a group of short stories that were unexpectedly good. This series of short stories had variety and several had unexpected conclusions. The last story - Unexpected Love - shows an empathy for a child that was refreshing. The author accomplished the development of a love for a child, showing how the little things a child will do in their development that establishes them as unique little humans with their own characteristics and abilities. ...more

Stories about love....hmmm. This could be boring. However, this was not! Nor are the stories all about romantic love. It's about love in many different forms. The love between a father and a daughter, best friends, a caregiver and child, even love that is not returned are all types of love included in this collection. I loved it!

All short stories were easy to read. I am not a person who likes sad stories, so some of them I could have done with out. I am the who always likes a good happy ending. Good book.
