The first, primary, tale that bears the title of this book, is an observance of how everyday encounters may be overlooked or even ignored until someone builds courage to initiate a change. It is a delightful, easy read, short story about two people who decide to take a chance.

The writing in this tale is excellent. The characters and primary setting are well defined as are the emotions and thoughts pervading each of the participants

This story is fully meritorious of a five star (5*) rating.

The second story ‘Coming to Terms’ is a bonus, almost ditty length, tale of how something misunderstood as a child may have a long term fearful impact upon a person’s life until it is eventually identified for what it is.

Bearing in mind these are very short stories, it would be unfair to prospective readers to say more about either.

These make suitable and enjoyable reading for those occasions when a full length novel may not be suitable e.g. waiting for an appointment; a break from routine with a cup or glass of something pleasant; a brief commute; etc.

These stories are certainly well-edited, and it is clear that the author spent a lot of time getting the phrasing right. While I think that both stories could have been fleshed out more, they certainly work well.

Landing into a comfortable story is such a pleasure, as is this one all the way to the end, which is really a beginning.

Delightful imagery, with a "story teller" feel. Always a pleasure to read stories by an accomplished wordsmith.

Eleanor (27) worked as an archivist for the London Metropolitan Historical Society. The man on the corner sold newspapers, magazines, postcards snacks & other things. Eleanor wanted to buy a London Guide to the Streets brochure. He gave it to her free with the stipulation she have coffee with him sometime. Russell (22) & Eleanor finally had that cup of coffee. His brother Peter covered for him at the newsstand.
What a wonderful romantic love short story (book). It would make a great movie or TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free short story (book)

How lucky we readers are when a very good author posts a story for free, or in this case, two stories for free.
