Stories People Love
It is amazing to see the imaginative mind of the author, Brenda Mohammed, who tells these so true to life tales.
These are indeed stories that people will love to read -some fiction and some truthful.
;The Headmaster's Daughter dates back to the 1950';s. This story gives an excellent idea of how life was lived during those days. The strict Headmaster was feared by everyone but love conquered all in the end. Children obeyed their parents no matter what. Education was the goal of many and Paul in spite of having to leave his love behind went ahead to further his studies. That caused great admiration for him and when he returned to ask for Marie's hand in marriage, her father readily agreed. Marie's dream had come true, True love and further education were brought to her door.
This is indeed a remarkable story and should be read by everyone who believes love conquers all and there is always a whispering hope in the air.
Travel Dreams of Yesterday is an exciting, true story of two girls travelling abroad for the first time. This story gives details of all the fun and adventures they had and the many challenges faced and how they were overcome. Their beautiful memories stay with them always.
The author has even included a poem about this first travel abroad.
;The Dirtiest of all Evils; tells the story of murder, a change from her other stories. It is nail-biting and grips you with fear and anxiety. Belief in God changed the entire plot. Read why Mark was set free.
The True Value of Insurance gives a great insight of why having insurance policies is so vital. Read the author's version of how Insurance helped her throughout her illness.
The Book is also interspersed with some delightful poems which can enlighten and inspire the lives of the readers.

Great little collection that will make you think (especially if you are a travel fan like me!)
ByKato's Revenge on February 21, 2016
Format: Paperback
'The Moral of this story is never give up on your dreams.' - author Brenda Mohammed.

With a title like Stories People Love,, this book already had a lot to live up to. As I read each of the four short stories in turn, the change from fiction to non-fiction made reading this collection all the more pleasurable.

As a bit of a travel fiend myself, the stand out story for me is Travel Dreams of Yesterday. The author writes this so well that you really feel you are journeying along with her.

Is it a spoiler to say each story is a heart warming one (a reference to one of the author's other works) ?

I don't think so. Each element of the collection's opener, A Headmaster's Daughter, twists and turns and demands that you keep reading.

The Dirtiest of All Evils is intriguing as a murder mystery and seems initially out of place. But reading the stories again, it feels a good fit.

This is a neat and extremely readable collection and shows an author who is able to write fiction and non-fiction elements seamlessly. It's not an easy combination and yet the author pulls it off admirably.

5.0 out of 5 starsA collection of stories, poems and an informative article all connected by the common theme of hope
ByArabella Persaud on September 4, 2014
Format: Paperback
In "Stories People Love", the author combines several genres in one collection.: a romance story, a murder mystery, a travel chronicle, an advice piece, and some poetry. The work consists of two fictional stories, a narration of a true-life adventure, some thoughts on the advantages of buying insurance, and four poems.

My favorite story of the collection is "The Headmaster's Daughter". It is a beautiful, finely developed tale that deals with the romance of Marie and Paul in the 1950's. After some setbacks in their relationship, they finally marry proving to all that love always triumphs.

"The Dirtiest of All Evils" is shorter but exciting in its own way. Mark almost confesses to a murder he did not commit because he believes he is protecting his brother. The true details of the crime eventually emerge and vindicate Mark.

"Travel Dreams of Yesterday" relates the author's journey, with her friend Sylvia, to New York, Toronto, London, Germany, and Holland. It is a detailed chronicle of their wonderful experiences and safe return home.

"True Value of Insurance" gives real-life examples of the advantages of purchasing insurance. It is an informative piece in which the author describes all the different types of insurance that one may need to feel secure in life.

Typical of the style of the author, these stories are easy to read and understand. The common thread that unites each piece in this collection is hope. The theme running through each story is that with hope and faith, nothing can ever go wrong. It is a theme that can be found in all of the author's work. I highly recommend this book.
