I gave my hubby a break for a day; hi, it is me again Mrs. Gelati. The reason for the break, well I was the one that read this short story and thoroughly enjoyed it; I was touched by it and have shared it with my daughters. The other reason I told him to stay away from the computer today is that I gave him a long list of things I wanted done for the Holiday this weekend, and gave him a head start to get it done. Besides that I am a bit upset with him and Zandri for what they wrote about me in their digital short story that was just released, The Gang That Couldn’t Kindle Straight. The two of them can explain themselves to you, my advice: read the story and tell me if you wouldn’t be a bit miffed or put off. I think I am well within my rights.
Back to Chantal Boudreau‘s story. I enjoyed the feel, and the substance of her writing. It wasn’t hollow and contained a deeper message and possessed some heart and dignity. The other thing that impressed me was the manner in which she went about it. She completed all of it in such a small package it made it that much more powerful; it hit hard. Her rich words struck me from the very beginning and left me with a renewed sense of purpose. I suggest you give this author and her work a try. I am glad that I did. Here is a little bit about the work itself and the author:

She touched our hearts and our souls with this beautiful tale of loss and personal discovery. The Ghost in the Mirror is a gripping story of how one person can make a huge difference in another’s, even after death.
