I'd call this collection a shiny tin full of rough-cut gems. I liked it (a lot) and I recommend it, but don't expect diamonds.

What's inside the tin? A lovely variety of stories. First-person and third, characters young and old, placed in venues from Afghanistan to academia. Each tale is offered with a unique perspective and a refreshing clarity of voice. Every one feels real and personal, despite the range of experiences and cultures presented. Some stories have twists, some don't, some meander

As the title suggests, this is a collection of eight short stories, each of them as enjoyable as the other. Every one of them was written with a great deal of thought and feeling. The stories are diverse, as are the characters, and are intendedas the blurb saysto capture a mixture of emotions. They certainly deliver in that respect: emotions such as pathos, admiration, sympathy, disgust, compassion and pridepride for those stories characters who come through adversity.

I found the stories in "Tales by Erin" to be thought-provoking and interesting. Each story is told from a different P.O.V. so the variety is greatly enhanced. The stories make you think and reflect on such varied subjects as disability, history and war. Female strength in its many forms is just one thread that hold the pieces together.
I found it a very enjoyable afternoon read.
