This book is one I was sent for review from the publisher at my reuest but this does not affect my opinionsI ADORED this book My friend had recommended this to me before and I had seen it generally on other people s videos and recommendations list but I never knew what I was missing out on This is an incredibly emotional intense and deep look at family dynamics grief happiness loss personality disease mental health and so much The stories within this deal with a whole range of different topics and yet each is only a couple pages long The way Carys Bray manages to completely convey the raw emotions of a particular moment or scene is excellent and honestly I loved all but one of the stories within this collection the one I didn t was the shortest at only one page and I think that s why I didn t connect as muchThere are 17 stories within this book and of those I would give at least 11 a 5 rating and 5 of them a 4 rating with the one I didn t like getting a 2s and so overall this is a very very solid collection in my eyes Some of the stories which particularly resonated with me and had a great impact were Everything a Parent Needs to Know a story about just how difficult parenting can be and the various troubles you face day to dayJust in Case about a woman who lost a babyThe Rescue about a young boy who falls into a life of drug addiction and how this affects his familyWooden Mum about a family who have a child with special needsScaling Never about the loss of a family member and the after effects on a religious familyThe Baby Aisle about how easy it is to fall into family life whether you mean to or not and also a commentary on class dividesThe Countdown a story from the point of view of the man when a baby is involvedMy Burglar a story about a lady suffering from memory lossBed Rest a story about a mother with pre eclampsia and how her family handles thisLove terms and conditions a story about the ideas we put around our expectations and behaviours in order to feel loved and do so correctlyThe Ice Baby A story about a baby made from iceAs you can see the focus of this collection is certainly family and the various troubles conflicts and moments which may threaten or endanger or test a family unit I loved all of these stories and they all felt utterly genuine and beautifully written when I read them to the point that I just fell in love with this collection from after the first two storiesI would highly highly recommend that you check this collection out It s wonderful 5s
