I really enjoyed these short stories.

Michelle is a wonderful writer. I got to know so many characters and their rich stories.

Wonderful book Michelle... I loved it.

This is a great book of short stories that explores themes of independence and self discovery. Michelle Buchanan is a skilled writer adept at creating fictional atmospheres that resonate with true to life emotion.
I really enjoyed this collection.
