Amora: Stories - Natalia Borges Polesso

This a collection of 23 Short stories and about 11 tiny stories (one and half page long at max).  These are the stories of women in love with women, at all stages and in all walks of their lives. Some of the stories are good, but most of them just slipped away from my mind once completed. 

There are 2 stories I really liked. One is 'Aunties'. This one talked about the issues like financial survival, existence of a partner in an unaccepted relation, if the other partner is gone. Kuppili Padma garu wrote a story a while ago on the same topic. Except that I never came across any other piece discussed those issues other than social acceptance. 

'Aunt Betty' is a story tells about the volatile human emotions and nature, with sarcasm. 

"An adorable woman lying there among flowers, surrounded by family and friends, peacefully rising above and, in our memories, already metamorphosing from Bitter Betty into a beloved aunt. Death has a way of lending people a benevolent air."

I got this book for free as part of prime reading.
