An early review for the stories
Talk about a journey to worlds beyond the borders of imagination. Mae Clair pens a collection of mystical, magical tales that catapult the reader to realms never conceived of, yet they’re intimately familiar. It’s so easy to see yourself walking in these lands and talking with the characters—probably because her writing is so vivid and powerful, you can’t help but be drawn into her work.
Clair possesses a rare ability to craft beautiful sentences without crossing the line to purple prose. Her plots are intricate yet never convoluted or contrived. And her characters are always rich and three dimensional.
This collection of stories boasts several pieces that resonate with me. Some are light-hearted, others are more serious in nature, but all make an impact. Of particular note (to me) are Robin of Sherwood, Desert White, Miss Lily Makes a Wish, and I’ve Got a Plan, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t call attention to Father’s Day, a story that touched my heart and I know I’ll never forget.
I’m certain there’s a story in this collection for any reader, and I hope everyone gives Things Old and Forgotten a chance. It’s an easy five-star recommendation from me.
