More for the Heart (Stories in Pairs, Set Two) by Ekta R. Garg

More for the Heart

More for the Heart (Stories in Pairs, Set Two) by Ekta R. Garg
Published: April 7th 2015 by Prairie Sky Publishing

Two more stories about the power of love. Two more stories about the characters you remember. Two more stories for the heart.

“Making The Proposal”: Readers learned in Two for the Heart about the end of Pooja and Akshay’s unique arrangement—get married and then prepare their divorce papers—but did you wonder how it began? Just how did Pooja and Akshay make this crazy deal in the first place? Find out in this first story in More for the Heart.

“Reminiscence”: In Two for the Heart, sisters Rose and Helen reconnect with great reluctance after an 11-year estrangement. These two women have spent more than a decade apart. What convinces Rose to stay this time around? Sit at the table with Rose and watch her internal transformation in the second story in More for the Heart

My thoughts about More for the Heart ~~ 

Elka has devised such an interesting idea for her sets of stories. Two for the Heart was her first set. And now, in More for the Heart, the second set, we get to learn the back stories of how the characters got to the places we found them in, in the first set. 

I loved the connected stories in Two for the Heart and you can read my thoughts here. In this most recent set of stories, we come to understand more about the characters and the situations they find themselves in. We get a better understanding of what makes them tick and think the way they do. 

I found that I wanted to get totally immersed in the story so I went back and re-read the first set before reading More for the Heart. With their stories fresh in my mind, I am sure I enjoyed my visit to their world even more. 

I love this concept for storytelling and look forward to the next set. Elka has created wonderful characters and stories and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next. 

And look closely at the cover. That's me quoted up there on the cover of More for the Heart! Awesomeness!! This is a first for me. I am so honored!
