'Infant Barbarian' is a pair of short stories from the author of "Make a Joyful Noise" and "Lemon and Lace".
The stories deal with everyday family situations and their sometimes surprising resolutions.
In the first story, Old School, we meet an interfering mother-in-law who is due for a shock. The second story introduces us to an Infant Barbarian spoilt by an indulgent parent. Justice is again dispensed in an unexpected way ." (From the product description page)
I downloaded this ebook consisting of two short stories during Jenny's recent free promotion. I've always been a sucker for short stories, being the type of reader who has to read one more chapter until suddenly it's four in the morning and the book is finished! Short stories mean just enough escapism to free your mind ready for sweet dreams. Unfortunately for me, it didn't work out that way - I galloped through the first short 'Old School' and before I could stop myself was already into 'Infant Barbarian'!
How did Jenny keep me reading? Easy! I knew these characters - and the clear prose, excellent grammar and character dialogue meant I didn't miss a beat as I read on. I'm willing to bet you'll recognise one or two of these people too - the interferring mother-in-law, the friend who's blind to her "little darling's" faults, and like me you'll read on enchanted with this glimpse into other peoples' lives. Thank you Jenny for the freebie, and of course, having found this author I couldn't let her get away, and now Jenny's chart topping bestseller 'Make A Joyful Noise' is also on my kindle.
