A great little collection that will make you think (especially if you are a travel fan like me!)
Format: Paperback
'The Moral of this story is to never give up on your dreams.'
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 standout 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 heartwarming 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.

A collection of stories, poems and an informative article all connected by the common theme of hope

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.

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.

Positive reading
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is brilliantly filled with stories and poems that are easy to read and which also contains valuable life information. They range from fiction to non-fictional stories as well as poems, which are artfully written to provide a positive reading experience.

The book is available at Amazon Universal Link.
