Book Review: Beginnings and Endings

Title: Beginnings and Endings

Author: Jane Suen

Narrator: Andi Arndr, Marni Penning, and Stephen Graybill



Life never turns out like you expected….

A weekly ritual that turns into the surprise of all time; an accident that has a devastating effect on two lives in different ways; and a father’s heartfelt journey to tell his son of an important part of his past.

All come together in Beginnings and Endings, a trilogy of short stories that will bring a lump to the throat.

“Grits Girl” explores the beginning of a lifetime of love over a favorite bowlful of breakfast.

“The Accident” is an ironic story of how life can change in the blink of an eye. 

In “The End of Summer”, two men come to terms with their past through an unexpected detour and the innocent joy of a child.

Each story is layered with unexpected twists and turns, and there’s a bonus flash fiction, “Pick Me”, to bring you a smile that will last the day.

My Review

5/5 Stars

A collection of short, sweet, and deeply emotional stories.

My favorite was Grits Girl, a sweet romance about a girl, her grits, and the love of her life.

The switching narration was a perfect way to breathe life into each of the stories.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
