Overview

Three short stories about women who are forced into tragic circumstances and make hard decisions to better their lives.

GLORIA – A woman, who has fought to have the most normal life possible, finds her perfect world destroyed when her drug addicted sister is followed home. Now she must choose between herself and her sister; some decisions shouldn't have to be made.

THE GHOST – Even on the most ordinary mornings, things can change in a heartbeat. Madeline's mistake in interrupting her husband leads to her unwanted freedom from routine. He learns why it’s not nice to smirk at your wife.

NECESSARY – In a dystopian world, a woman who had once had a career in medicine and a happy, fulfilling life now must hide during the day and steal at night to feed her children. While trying to filch some caffeine, she is outsmarted by a mean old man. She devises a plan to steal everything from this hateful man to make her family necessary again.

    Not so much!

    Strong? I was not impressed by the first story at all. It was too quick and a strong woman, in my opinion, would not have given up like that. The second story was also very quick. A strong woman, sort of, but a stronger woman would have dealt with the situation differently. Stopped reading before the third story because I was so disappointed!

    Well Done Women's Horror Fiction

    Free stories that makes you think. The first one Gloria: had me going til the end when it ended so abruptly. The second one was to the point and brutal. The third one: Necessary was sad but good and had you cheering while the woman was taking away the old man's stuff. Good stories
