A collection of short stories previously published in magazines in the the UK, Scandinavia, and Australia. An eclectic mix that illustrates the wide variety of stories that feature in women’s magazines. Heartwarming, uplifting and with positive, if not necessarily happy, endings.
This collection is filled with realistically imagined characters coping with life’s rich pattern, sometimes with aplomb, sometimes almost in spite of themselves, but always with humour and courage. I suppose that’s much as we all do, and this is the key to this collection, because Tracy Baines has a great understanding of women. To this end she has created real worlds with a few strokes of her pen.
Reading Ruby Slippers. What little gems of stories they are; funny, warm & beautifully observed.
If you enjoy reading the stories in women’s magazines then you’ll love these. Tracy is a master at crafting these tales.
