Love Story by Jeanne C. Stein

Love Story (from Dead but Not Forgotten)

Fans of Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series may be interested in this one as Stein imagines Adele Stackhouse’s (Sookie’s grandmother) affair with Fintan, a fairy, written as extracts of Adele’s long-lost diary from that time period.

I found Fintan awkward and strange. I understood why Adele would embark on such an affair – for the prospect of a child in her depressingly childless marriage – but Fintan’s motivation is unclear other than easy sex with none of the responsibility for the results. It’s been awhile since I’ve read Harris’s books so I can’t quite remember Fintan’s point of view on this, whether he saw it as altruism or pure lust.

*Free audiobook from Audible, narrated by Johanna Parker.
**This story was originally included in anthology Dead but Not Forgotten: Stories from the World of Sookie Stackhouse edited by Charlaine Harris & and Toni L.P. Kelner.
