I admire Melinda Brasher’s diversity. I’ve too often heard an author should stick to one genre and style, but their books soon start sounding the same. Brasher’s Leaving Home demonstrates her talent in everything from poetry to adventure, spooky to happy. One of her poems went over my head, but I like stretching my limits. I didn’t agree with some of the character’s choices, but I enjoy getting inside the heads of different people. This is why I read books! After reading this one, I intend to read more of what Brasher has written. There’s something unique about how she can describe a scene and let me know what the characters are feeling. Without excess words, I find myself in the story.

Brasher's short story collection has something for everyone. Her tales of travel gripped me with their understanding of the human condition. She has also included fantasy shorts, intriguing in their twists. Love this collection and can't wait to read more from this author.

This collection of short stories has it all. Fantasy, crime stories, sad tales of woe, adventure, a ghost story, and non-fiction essays about the author's experiences traveling in Eastern Europe and Central America.
Lot of plot twists and surprises. Lots of interesting little details. You really get sucked into the lives of the characters and how they are feeling.
Well worth reading.
