Review for Emily-A Compilation of Short Stories By Chantal Bellehumeur

A Compilation of Short Stories
By Chantel Bellehumeur
This heart-warming compilation contains the twelve family oriented short stories “A Mother’s Love,” “A Father’s Promise”, “An Unplanned Wedding,” “Emily’s Birthday Getaway,” “Emily and Veronica,” “The Halloween Party,” “Rest in Peace,” “Happy Holidays,” “Nadia’s First Birthday,” “Saint Valentine’s Day,” “Saint-Patrick’s Day,” and “The Coming of Spring” originally published in The Suburban Online Magazine between April 2013 and April 2014. They are all about the same loving characters, mainly Emily Jacobson. It starts off with Emily finding out that she is pregnant at the age of eighteen. The stories then follow about one year of Emily’s life as a new mom, loving wife, and traveler, among other interesting things.

(On a side note, if you read the fictional diaries “Veronica’s Soap Opera Life,” “Veronica’s Attempt at Romance,” and “Veronica’s Happily Ever After” by Chantal Bellehumeur, the main character is featured in this series.)
My 5 star review

This book is so cute and I love the main characters. I feel as if I got to watch both of them grow and that makes the book really good.

Emily and William are the cutest young couple ever. My heart broke for her in chapter 1 because I have been in her shoes before and she was a lot stronger then I was. I was in awe over William, now he is a real man that takes care of his responsibilities. I enjoyed each chapter but my favorite chapter was A Father’s Promise. This chapter melted my heart when her father was telling stories of Emily when she was younger. After reading this chapter I had to call my dad and tell him how much I love him. This book will pull on your heartstrings for sure.

Chantal Bellehumeur thank you for wanting me to read this book, it is a beautiful story. I hope you continue this story till Emily and William are old and gray.
About the Author
I am a multi-genre author who always loved to write but never thought about publishing anything until a friend of mine told me I should.
Before that, I was more interested in acting. I performed in a couple of amateur stage showed and joined a Youth run Theatre Company. I was also an extra in a few commercials, TV shows and movies.

My love for acting soon got replaced with the love for my son. I made him my number one priority. I found it easier to write on my spare time than to work around other people's schedules to act. I found that I had to use some of my acting training to write since I had to put myself in the shoes of the characters I created.
I currently have 9 books available to purchase. One of them is a compilation of my family oriented short stories originally published in The Suburban's Online Magazine.
My poem "Hiding in the Wilderness" and short story "Born to Sing" were featured in the 2014 Aspire to Inspire Women Writer's Anthology, which instantly became a best seller.
More of my poetry was featured in the anthology "Words of Fire and Ice," which quickly reached the #1 Bestseller status on both the Poetry Multi-Author Anthologies and Poetry Anthologies via Smashwords.
While I continue to come up with stories, I encourage my son to so some writing of his own since he is full of good ideas and has a big imagination. He reminds me of myself as a child.
I am a single mom and feel very lucky to have my son in my life. I wrote a memoir of motherhood, which was included in the compilation book "They Call me MamaBear" put together by author Amber Royce.
On a side note, Whether you own any of my books or not, you can request a personalized digital autograph from me. =)
