Warm and Gentle Reads!  4 stars


What a wonderful collection of gentle, heart-warming stories!

This is a variety of twelve stories, all featuring everyday folk with normal lives who find themselves in situations which, whilst not earth-shattering, are the sort of dilemmas we all come up against from time to time.

An excellent collection with every single one of these tales well-written and pleasing – absolutely perfect to enjoy with a cuppa. I imagine every reader will have something in common with at least one or two of them. If I really had to choose favourites, I would plump for ‘Granny Square Afghans’ and ‘Lucy’s Ice-Skating Party’. The latter made me smile remembering my own granddaughter’s recent roller-skating birthday party, where her mum was so busy putting all the necessary protection on the children that, on her way to put on her own, slipped and broke her wrist!

This is the kind of anthology which will prompt memories for most readers. If you enjoy – even occasionally – a gently amusing story or two which will, indeed, make you smile, then this is the perfect choice. Enjoyable, easy reads which will renew your faith in the good side of life. The title is ideal for such a warm collection of enjoyable tales.

My grateful thanks to the author for alerting me to her work. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
