Love and loss

Love and loss

A raft of fascinating stories about the trials faced by men and women who went to war or find themselves in the middle of one and of the tribulations of those left behind and other such permeations. The stories range from the 1400's to sometime in the future and/or sometime in other worlds. The message of love and healing intertwined holds true for all the ages and places.
I really enjoyed:

*ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

A mixed bag of war-related romantic homecomings. The stories' timeframes' range from the 1400's to sometime in the future and/or in other worlds. These all focus on one aspect or another of trials faced by those who went to war, who find themselves in the middle of one, or have been left behind because of one. All dealt with some type of healing and of course, love. Some were heart warming, some strange, but all in all a good mix from a

Fine premise, poorly done. The majority of the stories were too short and seemed thrown together...
