Reader's Diary #2223 - Gwendolyn Saltzman: Does Your Mother Know What You're Doing?

 Gwendolyn Saltzman's flash fiction "Does Your Mother Know What You're Doing?" is a perfect blend of plot and character building, working simultaneously and in such a short space. It involves two women driving through the mountains who have just noticed that they seem to be being followed. 

As that tension builds, however, we also get glimpses into the women's backgrounds and there's more to them than you first suspect. While this story is wrapped up, their personal stories are not and they leave the imagination, delightfully, running wild.
