Reader's Diary #844- Alison Weir: Anniversary




Debbie and I celebrated our 11th anniversary this past Saturday and so, with that in mind, I Googled "Short Story" and "anniversary" which is how I found Alison Weir's delightful "Anniversary."

By an unfamiliar author, with a rather innocuous title, and on the Woman & Home website, I admit that I was expecting a touching, relationship story-- which I would have been okay with as a change of pace.

And that's just the way it starts. Reading about a woman and her husband researching a good inn to stay in for an anniversary vacation reminded me a lot of Debbie and I-- we've gone through the whole hotel selection bit quite often.

But slowly it begins to change. And while it isn't the most original premise, it's certainly entertaining and far from my initial expectations.

(Did you write a post for Short Story Monday? If so, please leave a link in the comments below.)

That was a very entertaining story! As you say, not the most original premise, but certainly well done.

I hope you made no such discoveries on your anniversary!
