They say there's no greater tragedy for a parent than to outlive her child. In "Crush" by Robyn Bradley, you'll meet a woman who obsesses over the death of her son, seeking an unconventional way to deal with her grief. What she finds instead is what makes "Crush" such a satisfying read.
There is an art to the short story and new author Robyn Bradley has that certain something that just grabs you and compels you to read her tales. I had read her story, "Support Our Troops", and was impressed. Things only got better with this quick little story. At only $0.99, it is a great bargain especially if you don't have time for a full book and just need a quick fix of good fiction. Love it. :)
