LOVE, LOSS AND LIFE BETWEEN by Suzanne Rogerson @rogersonsm #TuesdayBookBlog #RBRT
In a Nutshell: Short Story collection, as per the title.
Ten short stories from fantasy author Suzanne Rogerson, snapshots of lives, some with happy endings, others bittersweet.
My favourite was the first one, Spirit Song, about an old lady called Cecilia and her lute. Short, so atmospheric; I loved it. I also liked Goodbye Forever, in which an abused wife makes her escape. This was most exciting and fast-paced, and I whipped through it. Another favourite was Garden Therapy, with its unexpected plot that unfolded so gradually, and I liked Catalyst, too.
As with many short story collections there were some that appealed more than other; I preferred those with a little glimpse of 'outside this world', rather than the straightforward love stories. I would say Ms Rogerson's talent is in writing the benign paranormal, for sure!
