Multi-volume, multi-genre author, Ed Benjamin introduces us to his short fiction story, Melanie: A tale of Wonder:
“In this Flash Fiction story, a 60-year-old hitchhiker gets hit by a car in Wichita Falls, Texas in July 1995. After receiving treatment in the local hospital, he decides to enter a talent contest to help out a ten-year-old girl, Melanie, when he learns her father is dying. What happens next has the town and the media buzzing.”
“If you like alternative fiction, you will enjoy this short-short story.”
This is a wonderful and heartwarming piece of flash-fiction! It will take most people less than an hour to read. You will get a fun and interesting story about an aging singer that has a talent for impersonation that goes beyond the norm.
The writing is quite delightful, the author has a marvelous talent for describing his characters, they seem very real and alive. The scene-setting is very satisfactory and enhances the characters. Action and dialogue help provide this story with a pleasing texture. Vivid pictures fill my mind throughout the story.
I award 4.7 Stars to “Melanie: A Tale of Wonder”, the score would have been higher except that several spelling errors interrupted my reading pleasure.
