Love Loss and Life In Between
By Suzanne Rogerson
Narrated by: Sandie Keane
This is an anthology of short stories about life, death, love and everything in between.
Not my usual choice for reading/listening - this collection of short stories was something different. I’m very glad that I took a chance on something new. I really enjoyed each story. They were like little windows in to different worlds - whole stories in their right but that let you build a world for the characters all of your own. I found myself creating pasts or futures for the characters.
I would describe most of the stories as heartfelt, there was a sense of calm and comfort within them all.
Catalyst had a much darker tone and was quite a contrast to the rest of the book. The other stories were much more gentle - Catalyst was much more psychological thriller.
The narrator was very easy to listen to throughout all the stories. Her voice was almost therapeutic - I could feel myself relaxing as I listened.
I am glad I took a chance on this book - it was a welcome change of pace and much needed.

Author Bio –
Suzanne lives in Middlesex, England with her husband, two teenagers, a crazy cocker spaniel and an adopted cat that thinks she’s the boss.
Suzanne’s writing journey began at the age of twelve when she completed her first novel. Giving up work to raise a family gave her the impetus to take her attempts at novel writing beyond the first draft, and she is lucky enough to have a husband who supports her dream - even if he does
occasionally hint that she might think about getting a proper job one day.
Now an author of four novels including the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy and her debut, Visions of Zarua, plus three short story collections, Suzanne hopes the dreaded ‘W’ word will never rear its ugly
Suzanne collects books, is interested in history and enjoys wandering around castles and old ruins whilst being immersed in the past. She likes to combine her love of nature and photography on
family walks, but most of all she loves to escape with a great film, binge watch TV shows, or soak in a hot bubble bath with an ice cream and a book.
