The intriguing stories are weaved with historical events and settings, symbolic of precious moments in time. The author has the creative ability not only to entertain, but to reach out and touch the heart of the reader. Each story will make you think about unique characters, who come to life.
Some will make you laugh, and others will make you cry. When this extraordinary, elegant collection of short stories is completed, a beautiful quilt is made, and an impressive book is born. Sarah Mallery tells the stories as good as Tom Hanks does in Forrest Gump, where she has your undivided attention, until the final curtains close. "SEWING CAN BE DANGEROUS AND OTHER SMALL THREADS" is captivating, engaging, refreshing, and powerfully moving. Highly recommended!
Her style of narration is so rich, all-embracing and enthralling that the reader would inevitably relive all the plots, immerse into the setting of each story, feel all the emotions of the characters and empathize with them, to say the least.
Undeniably outstanding talent, remarkable writing and memorable prose with lots to think about, ponder and decipher.
A book you will surely love!
I enjoyed Ms. Mallery's first book, Unexpected Gifts, so much that I was almost hesitant to read this one, fearing disappointment. Not only was i not disappointed, I stood once again in amazement at the storytelling abilities of in my mind, one of the best contemporary writers around. Thanks for giving so much pleasure!
At the heart of the stories are the women, who might use their skills to make a living, to survive and create a better future for those they look after, to express their artistry, to pass on cultural and spiritual traditions, to get revenge, to escape, to fight… Because it’s not only the big gestures that make the society we live in, but each small stich is a piece of the puzzle that is life.
S. R. Mallery brings to life a fantastic array of characters and recreates vividly the historical periods where the stories are set. The reader gets dragged into the moment and shares with the protagonists their unique experiences. If I had to choose one I’d go with ‘Precious Gifts’ that I loved and took me completely by surprise.
I recommend this collection to everybody, whichever your genre of preference, no matter if you like sewing or not. Go and read it. You’ll be amazed and feel better for it.
I was offered a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
