Here are the first two reviews of the collection on Amazon – short but encouraging – especially as both are 5*

I had read and enjoyed Margaret Skea’s 2 historic novels and expected a similar style from this book of short stories. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Each one is a beautifully crafted piece; each one quite different in location, style and subject. I enjoyed each one, was moved to sadness and laughter. It is a great Kindle deal !’

Beautifully written, compellingly melancholic, each one of these stories, whether set in Africa, Afghanistan, Edinburgh or Belfast, delves deep into human emotion and gives a tantalising glimpse into a broader world, an ample demonstration that the author is not bound by historical fiction but has a clear contemporary view, too.

It will be interesting to see other opinions as (hopefully) they appear.
