Such a wonderful collection of short stories!

Format: Kindle Edition
Ripples on the Pond is a fantastic collection of over seventy flash fiction and short stories ranging in genre but all dealing with the humanexperience. From friendship to love to loss to tragedy, these storiesare beautifully written. While reading, I found my heart yearning totravel to the places described and wanting to experience what the worldhas to offer. Like the title implies, each story is a ripple on the pond of life, extending its reach and revealing truth.
Normally, Ishy away from short story collections because I'm a novel reader butonce I started reading Ripples on the Pond, I couldn't stop. The writing is superb with its concise storytelling, yet I didn't feel cheated bythe length. Characters are fleshed out and given their moment to shine.When I finished and there were no more stories, I smiled to myself. This is one of those books I will be re-reading again and again. A mustread!
