There are three stories in this collection.

Dream Scream: The war that has torn apart her family and her country were bad enough. Never seeing her family, having to scrimp and do without so many things drags a person down. As if all that weren't enough, night after long night, the dream, no actually its a nightmare, keeps coming. She's not sure how its going to end, but the dread that fills her soul keeps rising. When will it all stop?

A Strange Place: Thirteen army wives go out to drown their so

The three stories in this book are light fast summer reading. I would have preferred more development, but these are short stories, not novels. I especially like the twist on the character of Glenda the Good Witch from the Wizard of Oz in the third story, “As the Witch Turns.” The energy and attitude are great. Reminds me of a piece I did about the stepmother in Cinderella. Whereas I think the endings in the first two stories: “Dream Scream” and “Hidden Intent” are too glib.

Fun and original collection of short stories. Carpenter's prose is fluid and engaging, and I found the characters' relationships and dialogue to be natural. I liked Dream Scream and A Strange Place the best, though I loved the range of narrative style in the book and admired the unique take on the Wizard of Oz. Dream Scream left me wanting for more...I was intrigued by the world that Carpenter created and wanted to know the "rest of the story..."

I enjoyed reading these stories. The author displays flashes of Ray Bradbury and Shirley Jackson—both of whom I love. If I had to sum up her work in a single word, it would be Wicked. I am most definitely looking forward to deeper, darker things from Anne.

Three short stories all about women that, even though they were short, wrapped everything up and made for a good read! Thank you to the author for sharing her work, and I look forward to more of her pieces in the future!
Julie Powell
Three great stories, and I love the way this author plays with the 'how is this going to turn out?' because you never quite know - and that's brilliant as far as I'm concerned. Loved them all.

Anne M. Carpenter loves writing - but is and was a reader first! Whether penning short stories (which she loves!) or frantically pounding out the story line for longer fiction, she writes with an eye on what she loves: a little suspense, a little irony, humor at times, a twist to keep the heart pounding and above all else, characters real enough to jump off the page.
