Beginnings and Endings: A Selection of Short Stories by Jane Suen 5 Stars This is not my first book by this author, and again will not be my last. I love her writing style and how the words of whatever story she writes just flow so easily. She's so creative and I love not knowing what I'm going to get whenever I open one of her books. This was an extremely quick and fun read. Each story took a few pages to tell but were so full of emotion that my thoughts and imagination made the stories so much longer. The first one definitely made me smile, the second one made me sad, then hopeful, and the third one was probably my favorite and made me feel content and the bonus story at the end made me laugh out loud, once I realized what I was reading I had to read it again to fully appreciate it. Great book, I loved it!

This is just a positive read that will bring a smile to your face and maybe one or two tears. These characters will show you what it is like to appreciate life and how it can change at a heartbeat. I highly recommend this book as I know you will want to see how these three stories and their characters will bring joy to your heart.
Beginnings and Endings is a collection of short stories by Jane Suen and I will admit that I was skeptical when first picked this book up. What really turned this book for me was that Suen so artfully pulled me into each story and made each story, while short, count immensely. I enjoyed each of these stories, whether it was for the smiles or the tears that each evoked from me. Suen is a new to me author, I am glad that I picked this book up, as it really gave me a great sense of her style as a writer.
