My rating: 5 of 5 stars

VAGARIES OF LIFE – A Different Kind of Life

It is a collection of short stories with a single theme running through them. Women are treated as second class citizens. The stories deal with the women’s responses to this unfair treatment and how they navigate their lives around it. It’s similar to countries all around the world and the mistreatment of women.

I give it 5 stars because of the topic and the author’s writing style. It is easy to follow even though English is not her first language.

About Shirley Harris-Slaughter

I love old buildings and history. That's why I ended up writing about the history that surrounded me all of my life - "Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community." Plus our church had closed and the school is torn down, so I felt it was imperative that we preserve the history or it would be lost forever.

      Ok Joy. I posted on Amazon and they approved it so far. John Howell said they took down Wendy Scott’s Tequila Rose, but when I went to Amazon to check today, it was there. Who knows what is going on.
