Gifts of Red Pottery

The author embraces her “stories of the heart” subtitle with abandon, exploring several fiction styles and tones. …wonderful talent for dropping the reader right into the scene and into the head of the protagonist.”

“As promised, each story touches a place in the heart.”

“These 24 selections are not “short stories” in the traditional sense. Some are vignettes and character portrayals in San Joaquin and Salinas Valley, California. These are the haunts of another great writer who grips my imagination, John Steinbeck. So, too, Anne Schroeder goes deeper than the obvious and uses her senses–what she sees, hears, smells, feels–and ADDS to all that her love of these people and land. NOTHING is verboten to her, FOR IT IS ALL LIFE. And thus to me breathing her world into my inner spirit.” From an Amazon review of Gifts of Red Pottery
