My Thoughts:

This was an excellent book of short stories. Written over a wide variety of topics the stories bring encouragement, enlightenment, and evoke a wide range of emotions. The stories are thought-provoking and can be taken on several different levels from superficial to something deeper.

I gave The Death and Rebirth of Anne Bonny 4 stars out of 5.  Readers of many different ages will enjoy these short stories.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
