Martin Walker's Bruno stories. They're full of beautifully described settings, genuinely lovely people, and appealing descriptions of food. There's no mystery in this short story but that honestly doesn't detract from the story.
Released 19th March 2019 it's 22 pages and available in ebook format.
I always manage to learn interesting things from the Bruno books, and this story was no exception. I had no idea about the history and artifacts of the early humans of the region. Mr. Walker manages to insert interesting tidbits without clubbing the reader over the head with the info.
Beautifully written, concise, and complete, this is a perfect gem of a short.
Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
