Author Stevie Turner of The Daughter-In-Law Syndrome is back with Life: 18 Short Stories About Significant Life Events. In this book, Stevie provides stories that appear so real that, as you read them, you may find one that closely identifies either with you or someone close to you. The book is about secrets, rejection, risks, and love; some of the various elements that create what we all call life. As in life, not all the stories have a happy ending, which rings true as you read. Whether you are a fan of Stevie Turner or this is your first time being introduced to the author’s work, you won't be disappointed.

This is my second time reviewing the work of Stevie Turner and, as before with The Daughter-In-Law Syndrome, I'm pleased with this book. Of all the stories, I have embraced nine as my favorites from Jump, Nan, Cover Up, and The Blackbird to A Marriage Made in Heaven because they felt so natural, relatable, and personable for me. Stevie has a great body of work where there is something for everyone. If you are looking for some short stories to just curl up with either on the beach, in the park, or in your backyard, then Life: 18 Short Stories About Significant Life Events by Stevie Turner should work out just fine.
