It reminds why I love short stories.
These novellas are cracked open, and all these heroines are stepping out of the old restricting confines and into a new space.Furthermore, for these lines in the intro I would give this collection 5 stars alone.
> The Saint of the Sidewalks ( 4 stars) A miracle turns a girl into a saint, but it ’ s not what she asked for.
> Once, Future ( 4 stars) This is the shortes tory in the catalogue, stretching over almost 100 pages.
> Dreaming Like a Ghost ( 4 stars) Beautifully written, this one intersects ghost stories with wronged women and revenge.
> The Speaking Bone ( 5 tars) One of the hortest in the ollection, this tal follows an island scattered with bones, the three strange women who live there, and the pilgrims who come seeking answers.
I did love how it mentioned the common curse for girls was silence, and boys monstrousness; there ’ s certainly commentary in there.
I loved the dark ending.
> Breaking the Frame ( 5 tars) This story is an excellent end.
