I received a copy of EASTER STORIES: CLASSIC TALES FOR THE HOLY SEASON from Plough in exchange for an honest review. This is a collection of short stories, with authors such as C. S. Lewis and Leo Tolstoy, dedicated to the Easter season. I was thrilled to receive it in the mail, for I love anthologies and some of these authors are my favorites. This also introduced me to a few authors I hadn’t been familiar with.
This is an anthology appropriate for the entire family, so it makes excellent read-aloud material. The stories are also great for self-reflection or relaxation, so they can be read alone. I’m passing this on to my mother now that I’m done.
These are definitely quick reads. I got through it in a weekend. The stories aren’t focused on the Easter bunny. They get down to the true meaning of Easter. It is perfect for this time of the year. I highly recommend it!
