5.0 out of 5 stars A Captivating Collection of Stories! May 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved everything about this collection of stories. The characters quickly come alive, each unique and captivating. The plots are all different, but equally engrossing. We have a taste of historical fiction, mystery, drama, and paranormal. There is humor and sadness, love and struggles. All are thought-provoking and wonderfully entertaining.

3.0 out of 5 stars Collection of cute stories! May 26, 2013
By Midu
Format:Kindle Edition
Your hand in mine:
The last conversation between two friends.

Thirsty Boots:
A tavern wench & a bard dream of a life together.

The Ballad of St. Anne's Reel:
A magical ballad that brings people together.

A Kiss on the Hand:
A son who doesn't want to let his dead mother go finds an alternative.

An American Prayer:
God decides to give someone a call.

Karmic Justice:
A cop solves a murder in the Akashic Gateway to Heaven.

An Act of Faith:
A man who sold his father to the Inquisition faces his punishment.

The Salt of the Earth:
What happens after you've died and are stuck in the in-between.

My favorites were "A Kiss on the Hand"-though the story should have ended with the engagement ring idea, "Karmic Justice" & "The Salt of the Earth".
