Okay, so I am slightly biased. I admit it. I have a story in this deliciously inviting book, HOT APPLE CIDER WITH CINNAMON.
But, seriously, you have to admit she's a pretty girl with her lemon yellow frock. The subtitle - Stories of Finding Love in Unexpected Places
, follows through on its promise. I'm in the middle of soaking up these stories and believe me, your emotions will be stirred.
My story, Old Ladies' Perfume, on page 145, was an honour to write. I did it as a loving tribute to 'me Mum' who, bless her soul, is not here to read it herself and tell me off. Although it's a story with humour [she was a funny girl] and shared shenanigans [she did some crazy things], it is also a tale of the life lessons that my mother passed on to me. I shed a few tears as I penned my story. I sure do miss my mother. She would really like this book.
HOT APPLE CIDER WITH CINNAMON is a great book filled with so many different stories guaranteed to warm the heart. I love the way our trusty, patient editor, NJ Lindquist outlined the stories in her introduction. "Some are amusing, some serious, some plain and straightforward, some intricate and thought provoking. Some will make you cry, some will make you laugh, some might even make you angry. No two are alike, even though their themes may be similar. Some will resonate with you as you read them now. Some will come to life for you years from now when an experience you've had suddenly lets you see what the author was talking about. . ."
I am excited to share HOT APPLE CIDER WITH CINNAMON with others. This 100% Canadian literary delicacy with 61 excellent stories will take you to a quiet place and remind you that simple acts of love can make a lifetime of difference.
