Book Description

"Love is metaphysical gravity." R. Buckminster Fuller

A force beyond reason and the laws of nature, love draws us together in many ways. In these four short stories, four authors explore the essence of love, from practical to magical.

"In Her Hands," by Angela Amman, explores the moment in which a woman weighs the choice between expectations and the lasting passion she craves.

A shy librarian offers her beautiful best friend a shot at the English teacher she secretly desires, in Mandy Dawson's "Home." But what if beauty isn't all he needs in a lover?

Cameron D. Garriepy's eponymous "Valentine" is a young woman whose fairytale is sidetracked by a trickster loose in the streets of New Orleans.

In "Elephants in the Atmosphere" by Kameko Murakami, a young woman in extraordinary circumstances finds love in an unexpected place and against all odds. Is a happy ending even possible?

4.0 out of 5 stars Love, Magic and Surrealism May 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Most short story collections by different authors are something of a curate's egg, but there is nothing in this collection of love/romance tales that I did not enjoy.

Highest marks go to Cameron Garriepy's "Valentine" which had great touches of magic and mortality, and to Kameko Murakami's longer piece, the wonderfully surreal "Elephants in the Atmosphere".

I suggest that you might like to pick up a copy and curl up on the sofa with your loved one. Or with somebody else's loved one if that works for you ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Four strong female storytellers June 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a lover of short stories and knew I'd be in for a treat with four strong female storytellers.

Though each tale was well-written and sensual, I enjoyed Cameron D. Garriepy's "Valentine" the most. Having read some of her books, I knew she had a strong sense of story and I loved the setting in New Orleans.

Stories of love, surrealistic encounters, and a bit of magical romance tempted me to get this collection. Do yourself a favor and be tempted as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book February 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Metaphysical Gravity is a shimmering jewel of a book. I slurped up every story in an evening and felt sad when it was done.

Angela Amman's grandmother is half the grand ladies I've met in The South. I could picture every pearl in her strands and within her heart. And, it was refreshing to see a woman make the right call.

Mandy Dawson's librarian was delicious. It was a joyride through the bumbles and blunders of attraction and highlighted so much of what makes it a mysterious thing.

Cameron D. Garriepy's Valentine twisted me in unexpected places. I never knew where the story was headed, and the surprises were poignant and rich....just like a good drink in New Orleans. I cheered for Val at the end.

Kameko Murakami's intricate story highlighted the bereft sense of waiting for the right person. I remember that place, like my life had stopped when everyone else's was rushing forward. Her technique for conveying that loneliness was brilliant.

These stories are all well crafted, an excellent value. It's a download you won't be sorry you bought.

In her hands
Adelaine Jane was heartbroken that her boyfriend cheated on her. They were set to get married, through this story she has her mother's advice as well as her grandma and grandpa. even with their input she still has to do what is right for her.
Home
Abby was head over heals for Neil, but she thought he didn't feel the same. So she tried to set Neil up with her best friend Kat but things don't go the way Abby imagined they would.
Valentine
Dixie tells Val( Valentine ) that val has magic coming her way today. Dixie says "loves the best magic there is." And little did Val know when she twisted her ankle she might find her true love.
Elephants in the atmosphere
Katie was stuck at 9:17 she was alive but everyone else was wax. Katie lived in a coffee shop and met her true love there his name was Eliot and he was wax. she fell in love with his writing when she found out where he lived and found he was an author. It's to bad she won't know the real Eliot, or will she?
This was a very good book there's a variety in the writing I will probably pick up more books from these authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Love? April 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
4 short stories of Love, how can you go wrong?

4 strong voices writing characters that will have you quickly turning pages and sighing with your own memories of love, loss and lust.

Each story is different from the other and that is what gives this collection an inclusive image of love, whether it's old, magical, chemical or simply taking it's time to show up,there is a memory for you in every piece.

a lovely collection from 4 amazing authors.
