Love, loss, joy, regret and the perils of parenting - all these themes and more are explored, touchingly and bravely, in this collection of ten short stories, including:

A Life Unpredicted - The key to your future might be hidden in the past ... Shortlisted for the Grace Dieu Short Story competition.

Parenting Class - "'You need help,' Gina had said, 'and I know just the place.' Gina was my social worker, and the place was parenting class, Tuesday afternoons, free to those desperate enough to need it."

One To Keep - A story for everyone who's ever made - or broken - a new year's resolution.

"This new volume contains all the hallmarks of her novels: sensitive observation, eloquent phraseology, a kind heart, a quick intelligence and a generous nature." Debbie Young, author

"Ms Phillips' writing is spare and direct, with scarcely a word wasted. This is just how short pieces should be written." John Dolan
