While I absolutely loved Isak Dineson's (or Karen Blixen in real life) autobiographical tale "Out of Africa," her novel "Winter's Tales" really paled in the comparison. I found these stories -- mostly with a simplistic moral message to be extremely hard to read. It really came off like high school poetry -- an effort to be pretentious and deep that years later just reads as silly. Definitely avoid this book and read "Out of Africa" instead.

This was a collection of short stories, some with fantasy elements, some with a bit of romance, but all having the same sort of wistful feel to them. All the characters seem to be dissatisfied with life. Some of the stories are resolved, some are not.I had a hard time reading these stories. They didn't seem to have a definite theme, and even the plots were hard to describe. My favorite story was "The Heroine."
