Overview

ELLIE AND MARGE are two wealthy, middle aged sisters who live in New
York City. They travel every year on the continent, taking their
annual vacation and on this particular occasion they decide to take
their niece ROSIE with them, since Rosie's mother has recently died
and Ellie and Marge want to show their appreciation for the way she
cared for her mother during her last painful illness.

Ellie is a widow and Marge has been divorced after her husband ALEX
has run off with a younger woman. Rose is single and is not
particularly looking for a husband, but Ellie and Marge are certainly
looking for her ...

Now it has always been the practice of the 'girls' (Ellie and Marge)
whenever they went abroad, to play a little innocent game of
flirtation; harmless fun, of course, where they would change their
names to enhance the mystique that they felt was theirs in the time of
vacation. They were carefree and young again, with the world at their
feet. Diamonds weren't the only things that a girl could call her best
friend. Oh no ... Alimony and a well invested death insurance helped.

9 pages. I wonder how old the author is? I ask that because a 35 year old woman is referred to as "middle aged" and "matronly". Don't bother with this.

This is a short essay. Hardly worth the 10 minutes it took to read. A disapointment.

This is no short story. This is a synopsis for a story - and not a very good one! The author, & I use that term loosely, seems unable to maintain a consistent verb tense & there is no main character, conflict, resolution, or really anything of interest. Someone may as well upload an outline for a term paper, give it a title, & call it a story because it would hold about as much excitement & interest. What a waste of time!

Tina Storm was a quiet girl and she likes to read and shy bookworm and she was also new to the school she was going to. She seems to like the person's music . Tine has inspired her to write heaps of songs mostly about her. She passed music and science classes with flying colors. Micheal is Tina's new girlfriend and they kissed that night. Tina was a mermaid and she leaves when it is raining out side. I enjoyed this novel. ShelleyMA
