    Stories with truth and warmth

    I only wanted to read the first story, but I enjoyed it so much that I kept just reading on. Each story had its own nature and surprise. It was sweet, sad, sarcastic, funny, and most of all, uplifting! This is a refreshing book for anyone who would love to read more, but has so little time. I will recommend it to my friends.
