My top 3 favorite stories are:
1. The Last Dance in the Searchlight by Mary Matsuda Gruenwald
It felt like I was transported into her era, Mary has a wonderful way of telling her story and although it seemed short it was complete and I loved every moment of it.
2. First To Let Go by Elizabeth Van Deventer
She left her work behind to take care of her dying brother, they had a solid relationship. She sacrificed a lot for her brother and every moment of being with him was truly valuable.
3. Tell Me A Story by Kathy Opie
A loving tribute to her Nonna which was one of the few most positive memories Kathy had in her childhood. She cherished and clung to her Nonna's influence, great cooking and wonderful stories (I would have loved to see the painting mentioned) especially during the dark times in her life. I found this story special and admired the author that despite being questioned her uncle - Kathy still had the courage to write this story... it is hers to tell.
Again, Secret Histories are of different stories written by local Salish authors about a memorable part of their life. So take a peek at this very interesting compilation.
“Tell Me a Story,” by Kathy Opie, was very moving and captivating. We have all experienced the range of emotions that she captured so beautifully in her writing. After reading her chapter, I can see why she was meant to be a writer. Her words speak to all of us.
"The Horn of Africa" remains my favorite and makes me want to read more by the same author.
I'd like to have my front door look exactly like the cover design.
What a great gift for Christmas!
