These are fictional short stories which will get you thinking about life's choices. Do you follow tradition or follow your own heart?
The book is well written and I rate it five stars.
I was attracted by the lovely cover as well as the title.
After reading the contents I can truly say it is one of my favourite books.
The six stories are well written and told in an easy to read manner.
They are filled with values and morals and are all connected by themes of hope and love.
I loved all the stories but ‘Lavender’ was my favourite.
It has a feel of historical fiction, yet it is a modern day classic.
That story teaches lessons of humility and forgiveness, qualities that so many lack today.
I highly recommend ‘Stories People Love’ to everyone who loves to read.
With a title like Stories People Love,, this book already had a lot to live up to. As I read each of the four short stories in turn, the change from fiction to non-fiction made reading this collection all the more pleasurable.
As a bit of a travel fiend myself, the stand out story for me is Travel Dreams of Yesterday. The author writes this so well that you really feel you are journeying along with her.
Is it a spoiler to say each story is a heart warming one (a reference to one of the author's other works) ?
I don't think so. Each element of the collection's opener, A Headmaster's Daughter, twists and turns and demands that you keep reading.
The Dirtiest of All Evils is intriguing as a murder mystery and seems initially out of place. But reading the stories again, it feels a good fit.
This is a neat and extremely readable collection and shows an author who is able to write fiction and non-fiction elements seamlessly. It's not an easy combination and yet the author pulls it off admirably.
An entertaining diverse read — each of the six stories touches the core of universal human experience. A particular favorite was Paul’s and Marie’s love story. Young love overcoming adversity is appealing in the warmth and hope it exudes. The conversational flow of ‘Yesterday’ is woven around memory, travel, family and friendship creating a feel-good sensation. The author’s open and easy narrative style is charming and relaxing to read anytime.
My favorite story of the collection is "The Headmaster's Daughter". It is a beautiful, finely developed tale that deals with the romance of Marie and Paul in the 1950's. After some setbacks in their relationship, they finally marry proving to all that love always triumphs.
"The Dirtiest of All Evils" is shorter but exciting in its own way. Mark almost confesses to a murder he did not commit because he believes he is protecting his brother. The true details of the crime eventually emerge and vindicate Mark.
"Travel Dreams of Yesterday" relates the author's journey, with her friend Sylvia, to New York, Toronto, London, Germany, and Holland. It is a detailed chronicle of their wonderful experiences and safe return home.
"True Value of Insurance" gives real-life examples of the advantages of purchasing insurance. It is an informative piece in which the author describes all the different types of insurance that one may need to feel secure in life.
The four poems at the end of the collection are based on scripture readings and demonstrate the author's knowledge and careful interpretation of specific bible verses. She chooses bible passages that clearly show God's love for mankind and the rewards received by those who believe in Him.
Typical of the style of the author, these stories are easy to read and understand. The common thread that unites each piece in this collection is hope. The theme running through each story is that with hope and faith, nothing can ever go wrong. It is a theme that can be found in all of the author's work. I highly recommend this book.

‘Whispering Hope’. Young love overcoming adversity is appealing in the warmth and hope it exudes. The easy conversational flow of ‘Yesterday’ is woven around memory, travel, family and friendship with a wonderful ‘feel-good’ energy. Stories that leave the reader with thoughtful contemplation on the choices we make that have an impact in the moment and beyond.
