Review of ‘The One: Stories of falling in love forever’ by Elizabeth Hodge (editor).

‘The One: Stories of falling in love forever’ is a compilation of short lesbian stories about finding forever love. What I liked about this book is that there is a range of different stories, some hopelessly romantic, some of lost love and others more suitable for an erotica compilation.

My rating is 4 stars because the quality of writing and editing in some of them is not so good. A couple of stories seem to be more suitable for a novella format rather than a short story and they might have been better with a more developed story.

My favourites were ‘The letter’ by Lucy Madison and ‘Old habits, new beginnings’ by N.R. Durham. But I’m sure it’ll be different for other people. All in all, a recommendable compilation. 4 stars.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
