    A Well Chosen Collection

    This, the 2nd Philadelphia Reflections book which I have read contains stories which are rich in local history. The stand out authors for me are Diana Bauer, Gary Hafer, Colleen Clemens, Maria Garvin, Stacey Harp, Rebecca Beardsall, Jillian Ivey, Tracey Berthin and Bernard Wilson. Their work is well written and entertaining. I applaud the editors for their choice of tales which make up a great book which can be enjoyed by everyone. I am now much more well informed about this particular part of the USA. I highly recommend this book to all locals and people considering a visit to this part of the world.
