Wishful Thinking is an anthology about wishes and the horror of those wishes when they come to reality. I wanted to be properly prepared for my interview so I took an opportunity to skip ahead to a short in this anthology entitled The Gift.
The Gift beautifully captures the community of a dysfunction neighborhood. Each house holds it's secrets and regrets.
Henry has his regrets. When the circus comes to town on Christmas ,an answer to one of Henry's regrets presents itself - companionship. But with it comes a price, and that price is The Gift.
The authors do a great job of characterization and create a very descriptive environment in which our characters live out a few nightmares. Can anyone survive the gift that is bestowed?
I really enjoyed this tale and even though there are a few editing errors, I will give this story a very solid 4/5 rating and I am interested to see what Michelle & Melissa toss out to the literary world next.
