♡ Nine Short Stories Written from the Heart ♡

Writing is how I try and make sense of life and I just love the medium of short stories as there is not always time to read (or write!) novels, but I believe short fiction offers the option to still have a character or thought linger throughout the day, transporting us away from the more tedious tasks of life!

In this collection ~ several of which have appeared in magazines, anthologies and won competitions ~ I have focused on the making and reminiscing of memories... some sad, some funny, some thought-provoking.

♡ I hope you enjoy them ♡

Illustrated with B&W line drawings by the Portuguese artist, Joana Soares, this anthology includes nine short and flash fiction stories:

♡ The Holiday
♡ The Bookshop
♡ Quiet Space
♡ More than Paper
♡ The Day I Fell in Love with Liz
♡ Conversations with Nan
♡ The Walk
♡ Toothbrushes
♡ Sid

I loved Alice Griffin's poetry collection, Poems For Animals, so was keen to also read these short stories, The Times We Had. The book comprises nine short and flash fiction stories, each beginning with a fun scene-setting illustration by Joana Soares. I was surprised by just how closely I found myself connecting with two tales in particular, Quiet Space and The Walk. The idea of being drawn towards the quiet spaces little-used paths - alleyways and towpaths for example - really resonated. In my Sussex childhood, such alleys were called twittens and I often took their routes to avoid the High Street noise and chaos. Although I felt like the odd one out back then, it's reassuring to now realise that I wasn't!

Excellent transaction with easy download and great communication from seller. I am glad to be able to offer a little support to a good cause while also getting to enjoy some inspired and thoughtful poetry. I loved meeting the adorable duck community in Monsieur Robert and It Started With An Art reminded me strongly of an event in my own childhood. Griffin's work has a strong message encouraging readers to think about their attitudes to all animals. She doesn't hector, however, but uses her poems to present familiar scenarios that resonated with me, twisting the viewpoint to elicit an emotional response and then to illustrate the more humane resolution. If I weren't already vegan, I would certainly have been giving a lot of thought to becoming so as a result of this work.

Wow! Alice went above and beyond expectations I typically have for a seller. Not to mention, this book is so cute and will be a great gift for my niece. Super great for any kid who has already made the decision to go veggie, or if they are even just starting to grapple with their relationship with meat products. Thank you Alice for using your talent to make this book!! (Btw on shipping— for any USA’ers worried, I live on the west coast and mine arrived earlier than expected 🙂)
