This is a collection of short stories, describing how women cope with love and life nowadays. It is a romantic book in general, with a twist on the real life and the burdens it bears down.
There are stories about women of all ages and the themes change in order to cover many of the issues they may fell into. There are different situations and different behaviors for each one of them, but the stories seem to end in a good manner for most of the cases.
The author tries to pass the message of faith, either to God or to ourselves. In a couple of stories we see the religious part really strong, but it was there to provide relief and support and to remind of the higher power that is there for us humans.
It was okay reading, not exciting, just something to pass the time.
A free copy of the book was offered as an exchange for an honest review.
This is a VERY unique book, a quick but wholesome read when you have some free time.
You will find there are all different women from different backgrounds, faiths and all living the same hardworking world most of us are on a daily basis.
I love the introduction of prayer and support, this is unique I have never read a book in this genre using this great powerful family 'stick together' Sisterhood before, but I love it , it's real ❤️🙏
The stories are short sharp shock type and it's great to have that little maze of a twist in each one. It makes you feel like you have read a whole novel and gives you that sense of achievment.
I look forward to reading more of the author very soon.
In the first half of the book, we are introduced to the many facets of romantic love. Holloway creates stories that are snapshots of the human heart at its best and worst, exploring the dynamics of how romantic love blooms and blunders, how it can heal and hurt. Each story illustrates love in various romantic contexts: love that returns, love that surprises, love that resurrects, love that requires revenge, love that redeems yet betrays.
While covering such a wide breadth of the experiences of romantic love, the stories could be more compelling with improved character development and revelation. As readers, our investment in each story would be helped by incorporating more scenes where characters’ motivations, beliefs and actions are given stages to play themselves out, rather than be compactly summarized and delivered to the reader. Much of the information about the characters occurs through exposition more so than action-based unfolding. Nonetheless, the stories are enjoyable. Plot points and characters are familiar and conventional. The dialogue is believable. The writing is accessible, familiarly formulaic like the narratives of a good soap opera, romcom or lighthearted drama.
