Short Story Sunday: The Evil Mother

Short Story Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read a short story.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

"The Tower plus the Moon and the Ten of Swords." ~ pg. 9

From the bestselling author of Handmaid's Tale, comes a new short story by Margaret Atwood.

Life is hard for a teenage girl in 1950s suburbia. On the outside, her single mother dresses in starched dresses, pearls and aprons. But there is mysterious liquid in a jar and an herb garden. Tarot card readings of a boyfriend with a fatal end. Whispers of the wacky homemaker. As the daughter comes of age and her mother becomes more outlandish, maybe witchcraft is real.

Bookhearts, grab The Evil Mother while it is *free* with any Amazon First Reads book until April 7. Amazon Original Stories rarely miss. And this was a 5-heart read!
