War Stories

War Stories
by Elizabeth Doyle
published by Two Harbors
ISBN 978-1-937928-40-7
Why Read?: Review
Challenges: Short Story

The nine pieces of short fiction that author Elizabeth Doyle collected into War Stories sure pack a punch.  Each story deals with war of a kind, some in a more direct way than others.  But each is beautifully written yet incredibly melancholy.  Doyle gives hope, but it always comes after an tragic price.  War Stories is not for the faint of emotional heart, but it is a stunning collection for those who can take some tears.

Rating: 4/5
