So today I’m going to tell you a little about three short works I read recently. Lets face it as much as all of us like to read sometimes there just isn’t time to start or stick with a book, and these three stories might just fit the bill, all of them are short easy reads with great characters, well thought out plots and satisfying conclusions.
Ricochet by Mary Jo McConahay is the story of a woman journalist and her photographer friend Nancy and their adventures together covering international news and war torn countries for the print media. While the work makes the narrator dig in her heels and work hard, the work eventually leads Nancy to a new role in her life and the lives of others who need her help.
Out of Dublin by Ethel Rohan is the story of a daughter and a family who deal with Mom’s Alzhaimer’s and later Dad’s health issues as well. It is a well crafted story about a daughter who wants to do the right thing, but she doesn’t always know what that is or how to accomplish it.
What I Wish You’d Told Me by Rochelle Jewel Shapiro is a collection of three stories all dealing with secrets that we keep and how they affect our world and other people and their perceptions of us.
