I love Linda Glaz's novellas! First Polar Bear Plunge delighted me. Then Miss Fishfly took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. How can you go
wrong with a cute little kid and a crotchety old man who holds no truth back.
Because Miss Fishfly is short, there's no room for messing
around with the romance. Things start of quick, and the chemistry between the main characters is downright tasty. But as is often the case, other
details side-swipe what would be a perfect relationship. Other people and situations threaten to permanently spoil the possibilities.
there's Mr. Hartley, the hero's grandfather. What a character: sweet-talking one nurse and humiliating another in almost the same breath. And he's the
spiritual strength despite his age and physical weakness.
Undeniable truth wrapped in forgiveness accompany this poignant story of romance
and family ties - dysfunctional as they might be.
Yes, I laughed out loud more than once, smiled a lot, and teared up at least 4 times.
(Running down my cheeks for one of those.)
As much as I hate to cry, I love books that touch my heart. And Miss Fishfly definitely does
that! Kudos, Linda Glaz!
