Short Story Review: Beginning Again
If you’re like me and feel the need to read some of my friend Sarah Pekkanen‘s work from time to time, you’ll be happy know she has a new short story out – Beginning Again. One of the things that makes Pekkanen’s short stories so special is the fact that they feature characters that are familiar to her loyal fans.
Beginning Again features Ilsa’s (from Love, Accidentally) sister, Corrine. Ilsa is getting married and Corrine will be attending the wedding alone. Corrine thought she was happily married until her husband left to try to work things out with his first wife. Even though Corinne is thrilled for Ilsa, it’s tough being around all that happiness for the weekend. When Corrine returns home after the wedding, she realizes she needs to start all over and she does it in a surprising way!
Pekkanen has written another wonderful short story! One of the best part of Pekkanen’s stories are her fabulous characters and, once again, I hated to tell them good-bye when the story ended. Corrine was devastated that her marriage was over but was determined to get on with her life. I felt for her and admired her at the same time. Pekkanen writes with such heart, I felt like I was rooting for a friend.
If you’re a fan of Pekkanen’s you won’t want to miss this charming short story. If you’re not familiar with her work, it’s a great way to try it. Beginning Again is available as an ebook for 99 cents.
