A busy day, so I'll take a break to plug my book. Actually this review on amazon.com sums it up better than I ever have.
This is a wonderful collection of short stories, each different, set all
over the world and at all different times. All the stories are framed
by Leah and her house, and by discussions with the people she tells the
stories to. But the stories are not constrained by a particular genre or
style; each is interesting in its own way. Not a word is wasted, but
there is plenty of room for musing and enjoyment. "It is exciting to get
presents," and this collection is a box full of little gifts.
Thank-you Mo Brien.
