What they’re saying about it:
“Now I remember how satisfying a short story can be. I will never look at a plastic Easter egg again without glancing around to see what else I might find”
“This story is beautifully written. I felt as if I knew the sisters, enjoyed the whimsy of childhood, saddened by the realty of life and how children view their world.”–Amazon Reviewer
