'Tis Herself: Short Story Collection, Volume One focuses on the small and the not so small events in the lives of ordinary people. These stories move us to laugh and cry as we encounter the twists and turns of dealing with everyday life.
Each story explores our common and universal life experiences and follows the emotional flow of relationships. The listener will wonder at the foolishness and the wisdom of old and young alike as their decisions and actions forever shape the course of their future lives.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Great story collection!
I loved all the short stories, it takes real talent to tell a good story in a short amount of time...
I liked them all, but I really liked the wife and husband who had been married forever and she just lived her on life because her husband was never there for her...
** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
ALL of these stories are wonderfully read and narrated, a sneak peak into everyday life of ordinary people...the secrets we keep and hopes we have...it was wonderful!
Thank You Audiobookblast(dot)com
Yes, in a couple of months. Bite sized audio can get me through the day. Listened to this because I enjoyed previous audio by same author/narrator
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
'TIS HERSELF was a collection of short stories about family situations that many people find themselves in, in everyday life. This was an easy to listen to audiobook albeit rather bland. One story had a funny scene when she threw out his (Bob's) fishing gear to make more room.
I didn't really laugh or cry, but I found this to be a relaxing book. There was nothing heavy. I think it was a good collection of family issues though. I'd listen to more audiobook by VALERIE ALLEN.
SHEILA CAVALETTE did a fine job narrating these stories. She had a nice tone with good voice inflections. I'd also listen to more from her in the future.

No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
This is a really eclectic group of stories told from the perspective of a town. As I have lived in a small town most of my life, I found myself able to relate to the publisher's description "the small and the not so small events in the lives of ordinary people."
The book contains every day events, like a parent caring for the pet that the child HAD TO HAVE [promising to care for every aspect] if they would just let him get him.
Another is the story of the a drunken husband who gets another woman (not his wife) pregnant and so on – funny, serious, tragic… This book has them all.
The narration was perfect for the material. Sheila Cavalette is a professional.
This is not a book I would normally experience. *I received it in exchange for my review. Others may enjoy this immensely – as it is well written & performed. However, my current interest is with fictitious novels and not short stories.
Notes: nothing to warn about regarding language or themes.
