all stories were ok...but the best was the wave machine.!!!
A book of short stories.As with all these things, I felt the standard varied, (at least in terms of plot ideas if not writing quality itself). Bread and Chocolate - the first story - is wonderful - so had me hooked right away. The other gem is The Wave Machine. Others not as good. Indeed there are a lot about married housewives to whom life has been a bit disappointing or lacklustre in some way, which will not appeal to everyone and got a bit tiring. (Biased as it may sound I don't see men really enjoying these stories!) The ones I preferred the most tended to have other themes - which were quite varied. Not read any of her other works. I suspect I'd enjoy her historical novels more.
Collection of short stories from a woman better known for her historical fiction. UItimately forgettable however
