Thomas J Baker has put together an interesting collection of 5 short stories, written in his fabulous style of storytelling that is mesmerizing as well as entertaining. What sets this book apart from others is the fact that all the short stories are different, offering something for everybody. Combine with all the extras, this is one read that is welcomed.

There is a historical story, “Boudicca, Her Story: A Woman at War” set in the first century AD dealing with the Romans with a Queen that is taking names and kicking some you know what. This tale warrants merit based on the fact that Boudicca is considered the first queen of England.

Then there is another story, “Celestial Games: Journey of a Hero” which is actually more of a fairy tale with all sorts of wonderful mystical aspects like Leprechauns. Kids of all ages are going to enjoy getting lost in a good story with this one

There is a story, “Looking for Catarina: Impossible Love” involving time travel, multi-dimensions, and quantum physics, along with a love so strong that not even death can prevent this lover to stop looking for his true love. With the story being set in Florence Italy on New Years Eve and Day only adds to metaphysical aspects.

The story with Snoopy and Jayda, a pair of beagles living in San Diego, will certainly be a favorite among animal lovers.

My favorite in this book would be “Meet me in Memphis: True Love” A touching tale set between Chile and Memphis of love with an ending that reaches out and grabs you by the heart. I am not giving anything away with this, it needs to be experienced first hand. Read more › <=== Click link to read more
