eBook (ePub): $6.99

Each story in this collection unveils a phrase from the traditional wedding vows: From This Day Forward; For Better For Worse; For Richer For Poorer, and so on. The time periods and the characters... More > shift from the ‘80s to the ‘90s, back to the ‘60s and then up to the 2000s. Frankie is a father’s young daughter in one story and in another she has matured into a man’s new wife. Avery is one of the in-laws in one story and a helpful neighbor in the next. Vera is a middle-aged housewife in two consecutive stories. While the first six stories are fiction, the last story is non-fiction--my memoir. Teachers might say I broke the rules by including fiction and non-fiction bundled together in one collection, but it just came out that way. The funny thing is that some readers have tried to find truth in the fiction and lies in the non-fiction.< Less
