Short stories anthologies always need to work harder to get high star ratings.

In hindsight I should have given this a 4. I waited to see which stories would 'dwell' and found that there were a few. When I think of these stories I remember New Zealand although, I guess, they could take place anywhere in the world.

- the Mum with the family dog
- the futuristic settlement
- the wife who must move once again
- the husband who sides with his moth

p.d.r. lindsay wrote her first 'novel' aged seven, an attempt to persuade her parents to buy her a pony. It didn't work, but she'd discovered that writing and reading were an escape from her tormenting brother and devious sister. She could create people who loved her and wonderful imaginative places to escape to. Poetry became her first love, then plays and finally stories from her adult imaginati ...more
