'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.

WONDERFULLY WRITTEN AND READ!

If you could sum up 'Tis Herself in three words, what would they be?

Great story collection!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved all the short stories, it takes real talent to tell a good story in a short amount of time...

Which scene was your favorite?

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...

Any additional comments?

** 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

Short and sweet

Would you listen to 'Tis Herself again? Why?

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

Short Story Collection of Everyday Life

'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.

Short Stories That Most Can Relate To


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.

I appreciate you reading my review. If you found it helpful in selecting this book or not, would you please select yes directly below this text? Thank you.
