Really enjoyed this very unusual book. Just the kind of book to be found on an Indie site like Smashwords.

“Confessions from a Moving Van” by Amy Neftzger is an interesting take on the interconnectedness of our lives. Narrated from the moving van’s perspective, these short stories provide a snap shot of the lives of several families in season s of transition. As we follow along it becomes apparent that the lives we are viewing have a connection to the choices others have made. In retrospect on wonders about the road not taken as if that were possible.

This book was out of the ordinary and a bit unusual. The lives of five people are told through the eyes of the moving van that moves them across the country. This book is easily read in an afternoon. I really enjoy short stories and found this book interesting and fun to read.
