Rating: 8/10 (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner
This collection of fourteen tales celebrates or castrates depending on your perspective female-male relationships that contain stay at home women. The sensitive starlets of each tale regardless of the diverse time and locales between stories write down their inner feelings that they hide from their mate. As individual tales each contribution is well written and insightful, but taken as a one sitting anthology the lead characters of each tale show the identical traits along gender lines as every key woman is interchangeable and so is every prime man. Though the parts are greater than the whole, read over several weeks, the audience will appreciate Jane Candia Coleman’s lyrical wit.
