    Described as an anthology “that helps shed light on the whispered truths of womanhood”, this anthology of short stories intrigued me. Wirth fourteen short stories written by seven authors (each author has a varying number of stories), the anthology contains a range of different voices and styles. I enjoyed a good many of the stories included and have since gone on to sample more of the work of some of these writers.The stories encompass a range of different material. There are stories about childhood experiences, the complicated emotions which can arise from family life, one woman’s abuse at the hands of a man she loves, as well as the joys of first love, amongst many other notable topics. This is overall an inviting and well-written anthology.Of the stories here, I particularly enjoyed “The Attic Room” by M.L. Eaton for its eerie atmosphere and lovely writing style. “My Mother’s Hands” by Helen Allan contained some beautiful imagery and a unique voice. “Shrivelled PawPaw” by Virginia King was a fun tale of youthful adventuring.
