bookshelves: short-stories, folklore, african

A single author collection of stories about love and lovers, each one retelling or inspired by myth and folklore. Lots of them are from various African cultures, about half were new to me, so I don't suppose I got the full resonance, but all of them stood alone. All m/f except one f/f (an absolute cracker as well). Lovely writing, and lovely, lovely romances, almost all with joyous, hope-filled endings. It's probably shelved in litfic but no romance reader would regret picking this up. A thorough pleasure.
