What others have said of Catherine Lundoff’s work:
“…this wonderful collection of short-stories is engrossing and delightful. The stories will leave a smile on your lips, and don’t be surprised if you find yourself shaking your head in disbelief and thinking, ‘I didn’t see that coming’.” – Gwendolyn McIntyre
“…stories that intrigue and startle, as well as sending the occasional shiver of delight down one’s spine that only the most skillful prose in the service of a wide-ranging imagination can invoke.” A Passionate Reader Reviews.
