Read the first chapter of Slices of Life

"Stories always tell us something about the teller, and these stories are the observations of a person who has spent a lifetime serving other people. Each story also tells us something about human nature and the lessons learned from observing the lives of others. Every story is a slice of life."

Some of the stories in ‘Slices of Life’:

  ‘Dinner Out’; A married woman on an evening out with an old flame reflects on what might have been.

  ‘Aunt Frances’; A woman going to live in France leads to an unlikely burial in the public cemetery of an Irish provincial town.

  ‘The Dinner Party’; A stunning surprise breaks up a post economic crash dinner party.

  ‘Breganmore’; The second coming of Christ occurs in an Irish rural village.
