Ruth Sims' powerful novella continues to be one of our most enduring titles. Jenre of Brief Encounters recently settled in for a read and emerged a true fan:
This is a story which makes you think and leaves you pondering long after you’ve finished the last page. It’s not often that a short story manages to effectively tackle such things as old age, tragedy, loss and ultimately hope but this one does in a way which was both sad and uplifting.

Her latest, "Song on the Sand," adds high emotional value and poignancy to her repetoire.
Tony Dalby finds himself on the wrong end of his 80s, confined to a nursing home, with his days as a dancer a thing of the past. The appearance of Drew into his life brings a welcome distraction, as well as a bit of mystery as to why Drew constantly visits the wheelchair-bound, comatose Jesse. As secrets are revealed, Dalby finds he may have a renewed purpose for living after all.
Although many authors may explore the trials and tribulations of younger people and their lives, it's not often you see people tackling issues dealing with the older generation. We hope you find this work as moving as we did.
