Short Story Review: A Whisper in the Weld by Alix E. Harrow

Shimmer 2014: The Collected Stories

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.
