This box set comprises of four different short stories all exploring different emotions and subjects
I enjoyed these stories as I travelled to and from work they made a nice change from death and police procedurals they were short and sweet and left me thinking about them long after I finished them.
One thing I did feel is that all these short stories had something missing, I often felt that I was being dropped into the middle of something, which may have been the author’s intentions. I felt each story was either missing a beginning or they were the start of something bigger a taster of what was to come.
If you are looking for short and easy to read these stories definitely do deliver and stay with you long after you’ve finished them. But you won’t find yourself eager to read on because once the stories gets going it then ends and your left wondering what more there could have been and you’re on to the next story.
All the characters were believable and reading it I felt that I knew them, the delivery of the characters was spot on and the details and descriptions within the stories, such as the scary woods and the apple tree with the familiar markings make you feel like you’re there witnessing everything progressing.
I guess my favourite story which I particularly enjoyed was “Written on the Apple Tree” this story very much reminded me of a wartime film with a split narrative of then and now.
