I have loved Carla Kelly's books from the first I picked up oh years ago Her characters are wonderful to get to know and so hard to say goodbye to As she is an historian and scholar it is not surprising that her knowledge creates such a wealth of detail and paints such a striking portrait of life in her chosen moment of history be it Regency England or early Western America But that's not why I devour her books again and again She tells a brilliant story with characters I wish I knew and events that are exciting difficult sometimes heartbreaking and sometimes triumphant She paints war honestly it's brutality and horror as well as the raw beauty of bonds forged in such fire Her warriors are soldiers seamen surgeons even officers and they are not perfect but they are humanI'm wandering far from reviewing this anthology of Carla Kelly's stories in my admiration for her writing and my love of her books once begun her books suck me in relentlessly until the end However to return to the point I must say I was thrilled to see this anthology when I first discovered it and could not wait to dig into it rather daunting cover notwithstanding and I was NOT disappointed I loved this book As with all story collections I had my favorites but honestly I loved them allCarla Kelly has a true gift for encapsulating a huge story in the microcosm of the relationships among a few characters leaving the reader feeling she has had a full meal not a teaser of an appetizer and digesting the messages within long after dessert has been cleared away Not many authors are as deft with the short story as with the novella or the novel Carla Kelly is a master of all three
