Room for One More - Memories and Make-believe
Is it true? Did it really happen to you? Some of it did!
Room for One More depicts snapshots of the author's childhood in Killarney, her time in a boarding school in Co. Cork, her college years in Dublin and her subsequent travels.
The short stories that these snapshots inspire, range from an emigrant's Christmas in Australia in Waiting for Christmas, a drama in a nursing home in Returning Home and a sinister feud in an Argentine village in And Then Came the War.
This collection of memoirs and short stories offers a varied and enjoyable read, to those of us who sometimes wonder, "could that really happen?"
Sweaters and Small Stuff - A Short Story Collection
WHEN ordinary people live through extraordinary moments...
Sweaters and Small Stuff is a wonderful collection of stories, depicting some of the most tender and sweet, as well as tragic and harrowing, instances in the lives of many different characters.
From the life-changing to the seemingly mundane, this thought-provoking anthology will take you on a journey that won't easily be forgotten. The two-part volume brings you a very different story for every day of the week, in the first section. From Sundays and Secrets, where a young girl's life is changed forever on a Kerry beach to Friday's Photographs, where a tale of abuse takes an unusual turn.
In part two, Foreign TV Stations is a funny take on a stroke of luck, A Model Mother tugs at the heartstrings and 30-Minute-Meals gives real food for thought.
Sweaters and Small Stuff offers a varied and enjoyable read, for ordinary people looking for extraordinary moments.
