Short stories with emphasis on each month.
Stories Through The Seasons by Rebekah Morris
This is a nice collection of short stories, well written and well narrated.
Although I am not a great fan of short stories, I must admit that I enjoyed this collection. There is a good balance of historical and contemporary stories that includes an appropriate story for every month of the year.
These stories are not as complex as novels and basically have a singular focus. These are interesting, provoking, and a great easy read. Although I listened to the audiobook, I think it would have been a great read, where you could really enjoy reading them one story at a time.
Out of the collection, I have to admit to a couple of favorites:
"Even the Beasts" where a mountain lion comes back to visit the man who nursed him back to health.
“Honor All Men” where a Viet Nam veteran is having problems with his home being vandalized.
I won this audiobook in a contest by the author. I was not asked to review the book.

A Wonderful Collection
Age Appropriate For: All Ages
Best for Ages: All Ages
When thinking of a word to describe Rebekah’s books, I think the best one would be gentle. While there is action in some, heartbreak in another, and lessons to be learned in yet another, none of them are gritty, none of them are scary, and none of them are hard to read. Her stories, while not always happy, are the kind that young and old can enjoy together.
This is a collection of short stories she wrote, one for each month of the year. I listened to them all in a few days, but I think it would be a lot of fun to listen to one each month.
Some of the stories were better than others. Here is my list from the ones I loved the most to the least:
Winter is Past ~ I just loved this sweet story.
Honor All Men ~ This is a Veteran’s Day story and it was so good.
Happy Day ~ This was such a sweet story about a little girl getting a mother.
Heritage of Praise ~ This Thanksgiving story was sweet with a good lesson
Unto Him ~ This was s sweet Christmas story about helping others.
His Mighty Acts ~ This was really sweet and I loved the historical aspect.
Faithful ~ This story had me laughing.
Give Attendance ~ I liked the story but I found it sad that anyone wouldn’t want a library.
Even the Beasts ~ I found this one interesting.
The Way to Go ~ This story was okay.
A New Life ~ I had trouble following this story. Maybe it was just me.
Forget Not ~ This story bothered me. It seemed to make light of very real issues.
As for the narrator, I feel like she did a great job giving people different voices. I would listen to more narrated by her.
These twelve touching short stories written by Rebekah A. Morris and read by Andrea Rossignol were an interesting listen. The narrator did a nice job with different character voices. The various stories were touching and often had patriotic themes. The stories involved lessons of faith. I was given a copy of this audiobook. All opinions are my own.
