About this title


Bouquet: A Dozen Short Stories is a selection of stories about women in different phases of their lives. Drawing from a myriad of experiences and interactions with women, author Louise A. Hess shows the relationships between a grandmother and grandson, two cousins, women living alone, and a woman betrayed. She recounts aspects of happy marriages and of an abysmal marriage. She tells of an adopted woman searching for biological relatives and of sisters trying to solve a family mystery. Hess' interest in plants, sea treasures, and antiques evidences itself in several other stories.
This is the author's first book of fiction. Hess enjoys writing dialog and uses it well to move the stories along and keep the reader engaged and entertained. The glossary at the end is as absorbing as it is informative.
Bouquet is a delightful book. The large type and short stories of various lengths make it perfect for traveling, waiting for the school bus, or reading on vacation. Each woman who is the focus of a particular story could be you, a co-worker, a friend, or your mom. It is easy to identify with these characters because no matter where we come from, or how much education we have, or how good or bad our own lives may be, we are women who understand love-or the lack of it.

Louise A. Hess is a free-lance writer. She is the author of Apple Blossom Time: An Autobiography in Prose and Poetry, 2011, and Something Yummy: Treasured Family Recipes, 2007. Hess is currently writing The Power of Ten, a memoir for her family archives. In addition, she is working on a non-fiction book called Random Thoughts by the Sea.
A native of New York, she now happily resides in Florida with her husband Bill. Hess writes, gathers gifts from the sea, propagates houseplants, and adds to her Victorian buttonhook collection. In the past she dabbled in oil painting and more recently in watercolor painting. This multifaceted woman is an avid reader and seasoned world traveler. She enjoys living her life.
