Notes
The anthology has already been well received for the quality of the writing with some pieces designed to evoke times long gone, and others looking ahead with hope and touching sensitivity. The book can make the reader laugh out loud, dip into nostalgia and share emotional milestones with the 19 writers who contributed short stories, reminiscences and poetry.
