Shimmer 2014: The Collected Stories by E. Catherine Tobler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The cool thing about reviewing on WordPress is that I can review a short story only – not have to use the entry for a whole collection! I understand Goodread’s reasons but sometimes it is frustrating!
Another amazing story from the most exciting new writer I have read this year. This is an earlier effort from 2014.
Isa dies in a tragic accident at the mill. She yearns for her dead husband, (killed in the war) but her main priority in protecting their orphaned daughters from a life at the mill. Her ghostly love encircles them.
I don’t think I can say more without spoiling this evocative and stunning story.
