Memories and fiction fill this collection of short stories with humor, heartwarming compassion, and spine-tingling fright from the author’s own life experiences and imagination she can barely control.
Quilts, children, and doggies have always played a large part in the author’s life. Therefore, it is not surprising to find stories of warm quilts wrapped around her tall tales or tails.
A trait the reader discovers in Barbara’s writing is that much like life, nothing within and between the covers of this book will be what one expects.
