Critic reviews

“A win/win when it comes to making you feel good - the stories will do just that, and buying this book will help homeless people.” (Val McDermid)

“Jack Reacher is a wanderer by choice. Others are homeless through no fault of their own - illness, the loss of a job, the loss of a partner. We need a better system. Buy this book and you'll enjoy some great stories, and you'll help Shelter - our best advocate for housing fairness.” (Lee Child)

“What a treasure trove of stories! Each one has a different style and I enjoyed all of them. A highly recommended collection for a good cause!” (Glynis Peters)

Perseverance of Kindness through the Bruises

The stories are not a collection of clichés. The kindness is subtle and deeper. The stories range from everyday reality to the realm of fantasy. The spectrum of the human condition. The listener's experience will dictate the emotions generated by each story. The stories unveil the invisible, misunderstood, ego, and indignity created when kindness is not applied to another or themselves. The stories show the variation in kindness applying to each condition. 50 stories(apology if my addition is incorrect) with great narration. I was drawn to this audio book because of L.J. Ross and Richard Armitage who narrated 6 of the stories(well done as usual) . Enjoyed every story/narration. One of RA's narratives was close to home for me,& perhaps him-Unforgettable; going thru parents' paperwork/clothes creates many memories. Another that hit home is Infinity and Beyond-the inner thoughts of this child compared to what was heard reminded me of my caregiving days with my Mom. I knew she tried to communicate even though the words couldn't come out. Broke my heart. Life experiences. I did have a laugh when a character in "Counting the Cost" was a curmudgeon called Mr. Armitage!
