Product Description

This book is an anthology of short stories by the author of The Stories of a Little Town. Some of the stories took place in a remote past in Little River during the colonial times. The tales are fictional with a touch of history. They are purely for entertainment. The stories of “Lillie,” “Family Secrets,” and “An Eye for An Eye” give an account of domestic and social life of slaves the 1700s in Saint-Domingue, Haiti. “An Engagement Party”—this story happened in the course of the American occupation of Hispaniola in the 1920s. “Strangers in our Mist” is a fantasy that invites readers into the world of mysticism and supernatural. This book is just fun to read.
