A passionate December love affair.
The meeting of an unexpected traveler.
The consequences of protecting a young new acquaintance.
A journey into an unknown past.

In the stories of While I’m Still Myself, Jeremy Lane eloquently describes the life changing impact of the brief encounter, showing that life and love are not shaped by an entire lifetime, but by the fleeting moments with unexpected people in unexpected places.

My Thoughts:
This was an easy book to read with several moving short stories. I shed tears over the first story That Winter.
The Reflection, Only Hers was the story that moved me the most. A young girl running from her own future. I cried hard over young Annabel.
The author has a most tender loving heart to have written these.
I hope to read more of his stories.

I recommend this book of short stories.

I rate this book a 4 out of 5.

I received a copy of this book from the author. I was in no way compensated for my opinion.
