A collection of short stories from typical life experiences in Samoa that took me from belly-aching laughter in one instance to broken hearted in the next. Finally a female contemporary voice from the South Pacific that draws awareness to sensitive cultural issues, laced with hilarious tales, and a realness that brings it all too close to home ~ Sieni

Touched my core beyond words ever could. Laughed out loud, sobbed my heart out and felt Lani narrate certain experiences in my life. Left me wanting to read it over and over and share some of the stories to family and friends who could relate. Absolutely loved it. Ive read all of Lani's books thus far and cannot wait for Telesa III. Thankyou Lani!!!

Again, Lani Wendt Young, does not disappoint. Beautifully written, with a great sense of humor, with short stories, portraying life in Samoa. I was touched by A Sister's story, Earthquake, Stillborn and many more. Induces a sense of reality that I as a Pacific Islander reads and understands. She paints a vivid picture of the island and family life, drama and hardships, what women deals with on a daily basis. Thank-you Lani for continuing to empower women with your writing, for identifying the reality of what can happen to young girls if not well protected or educated and how to seek for help when needed. Being a mother is not easy but your love and strength shines through in your writing that makes it all worth it! Can't wait to read more of your books!

The collection of stories were vivid, some funny, some heavily themed. having never been to any islands tropical or otherwise, I could see myself being there absorbed in the sights and sounds. Yes some stories were downers, but I'm a realist and I felt those stories in particular were necessary, not all things in life are rosy. I'm not fond of snakes and centipedes either! It did do something that is rare in my world and that is kept me reading all the way through!
