Tomlinson, takes what appears to be ordinary character who encounter seemingly ordinary experiences and turns them into a wonderful reading experience. My favorites are Things Kept and Things Left Behind. Things Kept is the story of one woman's wish and means of holding on to the things which her husband leaves behind when he dies, in light of, her children's wish to sell them.
Things left behind is the story of what is left behind in a motel room of married lovers and the final destination of the item. Excellent read, I think I just upped my rating to 5 stars.

Jean Easing is the correct word. I tried The Warmth of other Suns and just the size of the book blew me away. Tomlinson's book has short stories and is easily understood. Just completed a review.
