I absolutely love a short story. Some may think that this is a lazy way of reading. I disagree. Short stories can have so much substance and gives us as readers a glimpse of an authors writing style, ideology and a taste of future books. Also a message or important life lesson doesn’t always need or warrant a 300+ page book. Today I have read two short stories by two very different but equally great authors.

My Review ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We’ll Meet Again. Cathy Bramley
Enjoy this sweet and hopeful short story from bestseller Cathy Bramley!
For nurse Jenny Hallam, there’s no such thing as a quiet day (or night) at work. But even with WWII rumbling away, Jenny still has time, patience and kindness for everyone she treats, with plenty to spare for her two young children at home.
From his sickbed, handsome but shy Pilot Officer Will Rose has noticed Jenny’s gentle ways. When the two of them spark up a conversation, a friendship blossoms that brings out a new hope in them both.
Friendship is all their connection can be for now – but nothing stays the same in the war… What might happen if they were to meet again?
This is the perfect introduction to Cathy Bramley’s stories or a lovely treat for longtime fans. Also includes a gorgeous taster of her upcoming novel, A Patchwork Family!
