Review of "The Weight of a Feather" by Judy Croome

This book was a collection of 45 short stories all written at different times. I honestly can say a book has never touched me so. Every story spoke to me. There was a little something to be taught or remembered or mulled over in each story. There was not one bad one in the bunch.

I believe all of the stories were heavily written about strong women. And that was amazing. I always loved strong female characters and there was no dearth of them in this book.

All of the stories were all favorites but my three top stories were Black Waters, The Lottery Ticket, and The Blue Mountains. You will have to read it for yourself to judge your favorites and why I might pick those three as mine.

The back of the book has some excerpts from her other works. That was wonderful to read also. I intend now to read all of her works.

What I love was in the "About The Author" section in the back of the book where it states "The driving motivation of her writing is the search of love in all its forms. Judy writes because she believes words have great power: they can bring comfort, joy, and hope. They can reveal secrets and lies. And, while they may not change the world, they can - at their best - change people's lives, even if only for a moment."

Isn't that beautiful?

Read this book you will not be disappointed.
