Why do I have it? I have not read many short stories, but I like Norah Lofts as an author and I have read and enjoyed several books by this author in the past.
Saving Face and Other Stories is actually a collection of nine short stories by Norah Lofts. The title story is actually the third story in the collection, although all nine stories are set in and around the same little village in the English countryside. Despite this being a normal, tightly-knit English village, each tale is unusual and provocative - and focuses on the lives of some fairly ordinary citizens who are suddenly confronted with some extraordinary situations.
I have always loved Norah Lofts as an author - and even though I haven't read that many short stories in the past - because Norah Lofts wrote them, I was sure that I would no doubt enjoy the book. I was absolutely right, this was a wonderful book and I give it an A+!
A+! - (96-100%)
