Lachesis’ Allotment: A Short Collection of Notes, Observations, Questions, and Thoughts by Diana R.A. Morris was published March 6th, 2018. In Greek mythology, Lachesis (lack-eh-sis) allots each of us a length of thread to weave with as we will. This hybrid collection of short essays and screenplay explores the nature of friendship and our relationships with the people in our lives over time. From the friendships we form in childhood to the adult friendships we form with our parents–even after they’re gone–this work weaves together memory, meditations on making our dreams a reality, and the evolving nature of our connections as we knot our strands together or unravel the knitting we’ve achieved.
About the author: Knowing there’s nothing quite like a good book, Diana Morris set out to write her fiction debut, LACHESIS’ ALLOTMENT. With a B.A. from Boston College and a M.Ed. from Vanderbilt University, Morris uses her voice to help others as an educator, writer, and editor. In her free time, Morris enjoys hiking near her home in Nashville, TN, trying new restaurants, and taking down a well-crafted crème brûlée.
My thoughts: Lachesis’ Allotment is a collection of short stories, notes, and questions that are interesting and insightful. I enjoyed reading this fast-paced read and felt as if I was talking to Morris in person by the time I finished reading. Morris has written a creative collection of stories that is sure to remind many of their college days or days at uni. Overall, a fun fast-paced read that I would recommend to anyone looking for a quick read that shares many insights into relationships and friendships. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
