Short Story 11: Broken Crockery by Lisa Blower

Broken Crockery by Lisa Blower was selected as the winner for Summer Short Story Competition at
I am not really sure how to review this one. It was warm, full of thoughts and had lot of Margaret Thatcher thrashing through out.
The narrator is a small girl whose Nan [ grand mom] tripped and fell and broke an arm. Her mom tells her that she is in hospital with Margaret Thatcher. All through the story, the little girl remembers things that Nan had told her about the lives then and about how she loathed Margaret Thatcher.

I kind of liked this sweet story with a sad but appropriate ending. This one had a message in it.

I read this as a part of the 100 Shots of Shorts Challenge hosted by Rob.

Sounds like it's worth reading. I don't read enough short stories.
