Book Review: Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves

DA-DSTH-Amazon[1]-new

Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves is a collection of short stories by Dianne Ascroft.  I liked the book because if I wanted to I could read one story at a time when I had a few free minutes and not have to worry about forgetting what was going on in the story because in a few minutes I could read one whole story. (Or, if you’d rather read the whole thing in one go – the stories are all different enough that you won’t be getting them mistaken for one another – lots of different characters although most of them have an Irish connection.)

The stories were all previously published on their own – but have all been put together in this wonderful collection of heartwarming stories about life.

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review and participate in the blog tour. I was not otherwise compensated.

Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves Book Summary:

Dancing Shadows, Tramping Hooves is a collection of half a dozen short stories with Irish connections. Tales of outsiders who discover they belong, a humorous slice of life yarn, heartwarming love stories and a tale of taming fear. The shadows are on the wall, in the heart and clouding a woman’s memories while tangible foes tramp through the physical landscape. The stories were previously printed individually in a variety of publications, including Ireland’s Own magazine, Dead Ink Books’ website, and the anthologies, Fermanagh Miscellany and Tuesdays At Charlie’s.
