I'm not normally a fan of short stories, preferring to get my teeth into a 'real' book, but I really enjoyed this one.
I felt like I knew the characters straight away. The storyline was moving and quite unexpected, which I felt reflected the theme of the story very well. The twist creeps up on you unexpectedly, much like I imagine it would if played out in real life. (You'll understand when you read it!)
It's available for free download now, but hurry, it's only free until the end of July.
The back back blurb (if Kindle's have back pages)
Beth and Michael have worked hard all their married life to give their children everything they want. It hasn't been easy but it's been worth it. Now, as Beth enjoys quality time with her family on their beach holiday, she knows she has a lot to be thankful for. But it's not until she's faced with her biggest challenge yet that Beth really begins to understand how lucky she is.
