Clowns Shoes By Rebecca F. John

Standard

 

Review:

***4 stars***

 

Clown’s shoes is the captivating collection of short stories brought to us from the mind of Swansea writer Rebecca F. John.

She showcases seemingly ordinary people living out extraordinary situations with each story taking the form of a snapshot in the timeline of each characters life. We see snippets of lives that are full of disappointments, tragedy, love, loss and disguised blessings. In this collection we walk with characters that despite all of life’s hardships, are full of hope.

The author’s descriptions are powerful and the omission of a name for some characters made it easier for me as a reader to stand in their place, to feel in their place.

The stories are tantalisingly dark yet optimistic, an incredible combination to achieve and I was definitely left wanting more.

Happy Reading
