I really enjoyed this book, despite not being a fan of 'short story' books. The individual stories tap realistically into peoples lives with true insight into human nature. It is ideal to pick up and read over a cuppa for a real hygge feeling. Can't wait for the next volume Lis? I recommend this book to a wide audience of readers - there is something for everyone in this book. Great read!

I loved this book. I like reading however, I rarely have time to finish a novel. This book was ideal for me! The stories themselves were so good. I will be purchasing more copies as Christmas presents for friends and family. I hope that this is the first of many short story books by Lis!

A catchy collection of stories with some interesting and enjoyable plots. Highly recommended purchase. These short stories are inspirational for the aspiring writer.
Amazon - EMC -
A thoroughly enjoyable book of thought provoking short stories. Real-life situations which can cross all of our paths, some good experiences, some not so good. These experiences ultimately shape us into the people we are. Somebody asked me which was my favourite story of the collection and, having considered the question for a bit, I realised I couldn't choose one. They all resonated with me for different reasons. I highly recommend this book as a good read!
Amazon - Lyn -
I really enjoyed these short stories. Easy to pick up and put down without having to get back into a full novel. The stories were reassuringly familiar but also surprising. I can't wait for the next volume
Amazon - Colin Field -
I thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of the short stories and the snippets into people's lives that the reader is given. many of the stories left me wanting to know more, what happens next, what motivated the actions, and what was the back story. I would recommend this book to a wide audience as everyone is likely to find that one of the stories resonates with them. A great read!

I've not read many short stories recently but this collection has reminded me how good they can be. As a new mum I don't get much time to sit & read, but on a weekend at my parents I've been able to devour these stories in a few sittings. Really enjoyable stories Lis, when's the next ones? Highly recommended

I've known Lis as a photographer for a good number of years and I'm delighted that she is also such a wonderful author too. I really enjoyed being transported away in each of these short stories...I must say the romantic one was really touching and has impacted me a lot. Thank you Lis

I enjoyed these short stories. Ideal for when you're not sure what you feel like reading. Lis' stories are easy to get into and leave you wanting to know more about the characters she's created.

The first story captured my heart and the others are just as fantastic

I kept Changing Lives next to my bed with the goal of reading one short story per evening to wind down from busy days, I simply couldn't find the time to commit to a full novel. I found myself reading a few at a time as I was so wrapped up in the writing. Fantastic reflections of people's lives at different stages, in different places and with different underlying characteristics. These stories will serve your imagination as well as opening up your emotions through stunning descriptive writing and thrilling depictions of each character and their own challenges, feelings and development.
