Author Paul Michael Peters introduces Mr. Memory in the first story of this well-crafted collection: An old man, filled with so many memories that he’s tired of the same old questions; a young man with three surprisingly connected gifts; and a storybook that ensues, filled with treasured moments for the reader.

The tales are short and quickly read, perfect for coffee breaks – but beware; like chocolate, they lure the reader into just one more. Each story carries hints of mystery in connections waiting to be made. Each takes the reader on flights of well-drawn history and place, and powerful characterization. A sense of parable and myth builds one story into the next, even when the path is so different. And the whole is a beautifully connected diorama of people and place.

Mr. Memory carries the day, his visitor’s three questions bracketing the tales the lie between. But perhaps the biggest truth lies in the tale of a woman’s e-connections that drive her into narcissistic isolation.

May readers pick up this book, connect and see. It’s a wonderful short collection, filled with achingly short and beautiful stories that linger and grow.

Disclosure: I was given a free copy and I offer my honest review. ( )

"Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder" is a collection of short stories by Paul Michael Peters. There is one word to describe this book, and the word is "excellent".

Loved the stories about the character Mr. Memory. Especially, the love story "Mr. Memory and the Garden Turtles at Midnight". The theme running throughout Mr. Memory's story telling is that it is so important for us to remember those we have loved in our lifetime.

I highly recommend this read to anyone who loves a great story.

I would like to thank the author Paul Michael Peters for giving me the opportunity to read his work. I received this book from Goodreads Giveaway in return for an honest review. ( )
