“Language of Love’ is a holiday anthology filled with some of the best short stories and novellas by many of the most outstanding authors that Ylva has. I chose to read this anthology because of the list of authors. I didn’t even realize it was a holiday anthology until I began to read it.
All of the stories are good and well worth buying the book. They are heartwarming and romantic. Some are funny, some are more serious. All of them will make you glad you read them. There were three stories that stood out for me.
I would have known “The Friend” was written by Lee Winter even if her name had not been at the top of the story. It has her sharp and sometimes biting wit all through the tale, it was humorous and sarcastic and heartwarming all at the same time. And the way Ms. Winter can make her readers actually like a caustic ice queen is just amazing. Excellent story!
Cheyenne Blue made me cry when I read “Orphans’ Christmas”. I fell in love with the characters and I want to know more about them. I do hope Ms. Blue is considering making this story into a novel.
Wow, can Andrea Bramhall write action and adventure! “The Night Before Christmas—a Cumbrian Tale” had me on the edge of my seat for most of the story, and I want to know more about these characters too. This is another story that I would love to see as a full length novel.
Buy the anthology, folks. You won’t be sorry. You can find it here
