Catching the Light based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This is a collection of 4 short stories, all featuring women, who are disappointed in themselves, or their lives. My favorite is THE NEW ARRIVAL. Rachel has moved to the Isle of Wight to get away from a bad experience. She’s hoping no one notices her and so far its worked. Until the day her neighbor knocks on her door looking for someone to take care of Lottie, the cocker spaniel. The dog’s owner is in the hospital and has no local family. Rachel’s not sure why she said yes, but having Lottie to take care of changes her whole life. CATCHING THE LIGHT is a tale about Erin, who marries a man she really doesn’t know. But she finds out soon enough how abusive he is. There’s a touch of supernatural involved in changing her life. BELONGING is the story of Megan who works in the Theater For The Deaf. She is Deaf and falls really hard for a hearing man, John. Their two worlds are so totally different and all she yearns for is someone to accept her the way she is. Kay is on a mission in THE OUTING. She has suffered feelings of guilt for so many years and today that will all change …. Much more that she could ever have imagined. All the stories are well written. The author did a good job with just the basics … but longer stories with the backstories fully detailed would make for good reading, as well.
Interesting selection of short stories. So glad I took the time to read them. Will recommend and look for more. The characters linger. Thanks
