She describes emotions, scenes, and characters in a beautifully poetic manner without them being contrived.
My 5 Star Review
Here is a collection of short stories that covers a wide range of genres and each story has a powerful message. My favorites were Desert White and Miss Lily Makes a Wish. The first one is about redemption, life’s choices, and consequences. On a lighter note is Miss Lily Makes a Wish, where a sweet elderly woman comes across a genie who jumped out of the lamp she rubbed. The chose 2 of her 3 wishes were very simple: to fix two things in her house, which surprised the genie. It was her 3rd wish that changed her life forever.
The author, Mae Clair, is a talented and creative storyteller. Each short story had a life lesson, a moral or religious issue, or a thought-provoking message. Some were on the light side while others were darker.
