Wishbones and Other Short Stories
Mary Flynn’s stories are an eclectic and imaginative mix of humor, pathos and irony that explore the human experience, usually with a surprising twist. While most will touch the heart or funny bone, there is the occasional wicked tale, yet without a trace of drugs, violence or dysfunction that permeate so much of today’s culture and writing.
There is, for example, the story of a boy’s mistaken identity, a woman’s odd reunion with the love of her life, a house with a most unusual history, a cat like no other, and a man who sacrifices more than should be expected of anyone. Just to name a few -- "A Christmas Surprise," "Here You Are, My Love," "Not That Sorry," "Shatanja, Devil Cat," "The Christmas Samaritan," and "Madonna and Child."
