An interesting and thought provoking assortment of short stories and poetry. Blaine paints scenery with his writing and you feel as though you are there. As down to earth and entertaining as each of these stories are there is always subtle lessons to be learned from each. Most of the stories will stir your emotions but,
“The Source” offered us that edgy away from reality feel, ah, but does it? Since there really are monsters :)
The author, Blaine Coleman, has an “easy going style” with his story telling. A soft touch that has the reader wanting more, because his words flow easily into each new tale. He takes you from sadness, fear, and feeling abandoned to love, hope, and survival and sadness again. Life. As you read his stories you will embrace the characters and maybe even relate that in many ways, pieces of each tale mirror parts from our own lives. I enjoyed this book in its entirety but must admit to having two favorites, totally loved and enjoyed being able to relate strongly to both “And When I Got Home” and “The Lighthouse”. Looking forward to more from this author!
