Book Review - Lisa's Dress


 
 Lisa’s Dress is a story about love, loss, guilt and maturity. By refusing to take responsibility for his actions, Will jeopardizes his family. His wife’s wedding dress, which hangs in his closet, serves as a painful reminder of what it is to love and lose someone. 

I was able to relate to both main characters, although I wanted to slap Will a time or two for his stubbornness and the time wasted. 

This short story kept me engaged and the end was satisfying. I will definitely look out for other books written by Ms. Matthews

COVER NOTE:  Well done and fitting, I think. I like it.

SOURCE: I downloaded Lisa's Dress from Amazon.

  1. Nice straightforward review. I love short stories that are engaging, with complex interesting characters. The kind of stories I try to write.

  3. Hey J.L,
    Nice to meet you. This does sound good. And anyone who admits to want to slap characters fits into my world. I do a lot of virtual slapping...

    1. Hi, Tina,
      Good to meet you too. There are some character that you can't help wanting to do bodily harm. Guess the writers have done a good job when that happens.

    1. That will happen if the character is holding steady, doing the not-so-sensible thing. :)
