Book Review: The Very Best of Kate Elliott (Three Stars)
“Gold is not harder than granite.”
A better-than-average collection of short stories. Admittedly a low bar. Nice cover art, unrelated to any story.
“A woman could live her life tending the fire of such a man’s life. Its heat was seductive, but in the end its glory belonged only to him.”
Eclectic, apparently some connected to novels she published elsewhere. Strong female characterizations.
“See, it’ll be the last burial in this house—we’ve got no more sheets to spare!”
For those who her message, the closing essays clarifies.
“Sometimes stubbornness was the only thing that kept you going.”
