On Traigh Lar Beach

I never read short stories. This short story collection may have changed my mind. Enter the world of Scotland where an author is traveling with her husband after an author’s award banquet where she won an award. The author is feeling stuck inspiration wise. On their travels she observes random objects she discovers. The short stories are the background stories to the objects. After these short stories is a novella about a popular band and the lives of a few of the groupies.

The description of these short stories are vivid. I’ve never been to Scotland, but the descriptions make you feel as if you are there with the characters. I Googled the name of the beach and it’s beyond stunning. Hopefully this collection will help others be inspired to visit Scotland.

The band novella is quirky. I haven’t been obsessed with a band in a very long time, but the novella shows how music and artists strongly affect fans. The novella is broken up in sections by the different fan’s point of view.

I received my complimentary copy of On Traigh Lar Beach by Dianne Ebertt Beeaff from care of Smith Publicity. The views are mine and of my own choice.
