This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I was asked to review by Librarything.com

Touching collection of stories, beautiful and as the title suggest with sorrow. This will bring on some tears; you will reflect, be horrified and be cast a spell of magic too. It is a strange rollercoaster of emotions.
The writer writes well, and to pull this together is something of an art. There is just so much emotion in this short story book.

A really talented author, I urge you to read this book. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 098827230X, Paperback)

There is a place where sorrows pile up like snow and rest in your hair like cherry blossoms. Boys have wings, monsters fall in love, women fade into nothingness, and the bones of small children snap like twigs. Darkness will surely devour you--but it will be exquisitely lovely while doing so.

Mercedes M. Yardley’s Beautiful Sorrows is an ephemeral collection encompassing twenty-seven short tales full of devastation, death, longing, and the shining ribbon of hope that binds them all together.
