    Six short memoirs that are truly inspiring. I could see bits of myself, or people that I am close to, in every narrative.I am going to look into reading what else these six authors have written.

They all really had some inspiring short stories about their personal and important moment in their lives that were a good encouragement to all who reads for it. Be ready for a stories of "self doubt, challenges and disappointments." I found each author anthology had its own unique and personal message with such a deep lesson that was learned from their own particular lives. Each ones life's weren't perfect but they were able to rise above it all so well....and look at them now definitely having over come the odds. I believe each of these author showed that they wrote from their heart with each intimate story showing such emotions that can be conquered. These are definitely stories that can be related and pass on to others who are dealing with such issues such as 'hardships, love, conflict, loss, redemption and the salvation through God's healing love." What I especially like from this novel ....I liked how these authors were able to share with their readers about such details that will help others that were definitely written with love showing us your openness and honesty. Great job to all of you!

    "Just Between Us: Inspiring Stories By Women" by Selena Haskins and other wonderful writers is a very touching and quite inspirational selection of short articles about personal and important moments in the authors' lives. I had the pleasure of reading fiction by almost all of the authors in this book before and so the stories had an additional impact on me, seeing the real women behind the fictional stories they have published elsewhere.What I took with me from this book is the need to be true to myself, as the opening story so importantly relays. Each story has its unique and personal message, deep and meaningful lessons learned from life. It shows how we can learn from every life and from every experience. The women in this book are not only sharing these precious musings, they are sharing them for free as a gift to us all, and they are received with great thanks by this reader.

    Their Stories“Just Between Us: Inspiring Stories by Women” is a compilation of short stories by six women.‘Mirrors Don’t Lie’ by Selena Haskins is a glimpse into the author’s past. The story starts off with the bible verse James 1:23-24 from the New World Translation. The symbolism of this scripture is the ‘mirror.’ “A mirror will always tell you the truth about yourself. A mirror could only reflect what was being presented.” Ms. Haskins pondered this while walking by the mirror one day. She noticed she looked tired and in need of rest. She had responsibilities to her child, husband, family and friends, but the one person she neglected more than anyone was herself. (4 stars)‘For the Love of You’ by Tamika Christy tells of her background as a kid growing up. Ms. Christy was raised by her father. She never knew the true reason for her father being the one to raise her. She would visit with her mom as she was growing up but it was not often enough. It took her father’s disappointment in her for her mother to step in and be the mother she was never to her before. Ms. Christy soon found in her not only a mother but a best friend. (3 stars)‘Epiphany’ by Adrienne Thompson begins with a powerful poem of a woman hurt by a man that has hurt her emotionally. Thus begins her story about a woman recently divorced with two children to take care of on her own. Although she had a good job it was still difficult to do alone. In a state of depression is when she met ‘him.’ Even with the truth being stated up front, she goes into the relationship eyes wide open. Little could she know the man she thought she knew would be the one to take her through hell and back. (3.5 stars)‘Love Letters to Jahdai’ by Janice Ross is the story of a man in her past. A man that she shared a forbidden love with since she was married to another. Unhappy and physically abused is what spurned her affair. The fact that another man loved her was enough to endure the physical abuse she received at home. (2 stars)‘Falling for the One’ by Nicole Dunlap opens with a poem of a young mother who has had enough. Her story involves a man who comes after the one that has hurt you more than any other man. Almost every woman has had a man in her life that was the one to hurt her, make her look at the next man and question whether he is doing the same things as the last man that hurt her. Questioning where he has been, who he was with, if he was telling the truth or a lie. Maybe not outright accusing the next man, but always those thoughts in the back of your mind. What does one do to shake the negative of that old one, to give the next one the benefit of the doubt? (3 stars)‘Tinaah’ by T.M. Brown is about a college graduate still living at home with her mother in the projects. She was embarrassed how she lost sight of her own dreams constantly running behind a man. With the thought of starting fresh, she makes the decision to take a job that would relocate her out of state. Confusion led to her being with a man that lied and left her with a gift that would change her life. (3 stars)“Just Between Us-Inspiring Stories Told by Women” is an okay read at best. Every story any woman can relate to in one way or another, whether it’s you or someone you may know that may have went through it. Selena Haskins tells her story though a scripture and the symbolism of what it represents is enough for any woman to understand. Tamika Christy tells her story of love and loss but the story itself was too short and lacked background information. Ms. Thompson's story was a very personal glimpse into her life. At times the story is a little choppy due to an unclear timeline. There are also a few editing issues within her story. Overall it was a good story. Janice Ross’ story was the one I had the most difficult time with. Her story was told in descriptive words, poetic if you will, but failed in the fact that it was just confusing. It was overly descriptive. Nicole Dunlap’s story had a good premise but it was just was too short to really hit the mark. T.M. Brown’s story kind of jumped all over the place. Also, she noted her story is something that she didn’t share in her first book. Many readers of this anthology may not have read that book.Reviewed by: LeonaR

    A collection of heart warming short storiesThis is a collection of six stories by women who have felt pain and before hitting rock bottom pulled themselves from the brink to reclaim their lives. The common denominator is a love of self. They eventually learned to love themselves more than the men or things that dominated their lives and in so doing was able to be of more use to their families.First story by Selena Haskins: Salena reclaimed her life, learned to say NO and found quality time for herself with the help of her mirror and God. A touching story that is very relatable to the hectic schedule working women go through making time for everybody else except themselves. Stopping to breathe again.Second story by Tamika Christy: A moving story of a mother’s love and a father’s guidance. The author expressed the tender moments shared with her mom who she did not grow up with but bonded later in life. Her dad who she grew up with was rigid and showed his love differently. It’s a story that shows kids from broken homes can still have an effective loving relationship with both parents when they are civil with each other.Third story by Adrienne Thompson: Entering into a forbidden love only leads to heartache and despair. The author shows a typical relationship in which a woman forsakes her sole and kids for the love of a man. It ends with her redemption as she reclaims her life and care of her kids.Fourth story by Janice Ross: A letter about stealing love on the side. What was and what could have been. A love tasted and lost. When abuse forces you into the arms of another but the pain of being unable to hold on lingers.Fifth story by Nicole Dunlap: The story started with a simple poem then rolled into a broken story. For whatever reason the author was afraid to use names and instead used a list of labels to describe individuals which only made this an annoying read.Sixth story by T.M. Brown: Another story where the author was afraid to use names and refers to the main character as HIM. A story of revenge sex.All in all a good relaxing read. Many women will be able to see themselves in these stories. The key is to not stay in the rut.

    I enjoyed reading the short stories of these six women as they shared their affairs of the heart and simply learned to prioritize what is important in life. All seemed to understand the need for their spirituality as a source of strength whether dealing with being overworked; in an abusive relationship or in recovery from the onslaught of repeated disappointments. They all emerge victorious and I see facets of my own life in their stories. Well-done.

    This book was very inspiring. The common factor in this read is "Self-Love". This book had amazing life experiences of how you always seem to forget about yourself and allow everything and anything to come and takeover. I can relate very well to all the various stories within the book.

    Good short storiesI haven't read many short story books. So, I'm not quite sure if I'm rating this correctly. The stories were deep. A few editing errors. The stories gave you a glimpse of the writing styles of each author. I wasn't familiar with any of the featured authors. I really enjoyed the story by Adrienne Thompson. I will read a novel by her in the future. I recommend this book to those wanting to try new authors.

    InterestingInteresting stories. Would've liked to hear more of how God actually helped them overcome in a few of the stories instead of a line or two stating that he did. Nonetheless, it made for a good read.
