This short story deals with party and drama; life and death. I like the prose and the way the story goes.

The four short stories on this MP3 CD entitled The Garden Party) were great, but The Garden Party was not one of them. I'm confused by that, and think I will just need to buy the book, but the experience has been a good one anyway as the stories were good.
This book is an enjoyable read. Sarah Challis is an author adept at developing an interesting variety of characters and intriguing situations.
