Review for Stories and Imaginings for THE READING SPOT by JD Holiday
A collection of short stories that will tear at your heart!
As I read each story in this unusual collection I found a warmth and almost down home earthiness to them. The characters seem to spring from our own backyards. In many cases the stories take place in a small town where everyone seems to know everyone else. In some there is the promise of love and in others there is the sadness of having known love. In one story which touches on child abuse you feel the horror in a child’s point of view.
Each story brings with it a complete world and for a couple of these I hoped that I would learn more about this world. The author captures the dialogue of each different situation creating a special bond between you and the characters. It’s almost like talking over the back fence about people you know or hearing about it from a friend.
In this collection, JD Holiday has put together a series of stories that will keep you reading until the end. I would recommend it for anyone who is in need of a book for those in between moments when you need a little something to read. ~ Author Barbara Ehrentreu
