Looking For America is a collection of short stories set in the Shetland Isles.

The characters are young and old, and all facing some challenge in their lives.

Here’s what reviewers say:

“Yvonne Spence paints. She draws beautifully crafted portraits of real people. And while you are reading her paintings, you wonder “How does she do it?” … Reading her, I was reminded of the wonderful books “Corazón tan blanco” from Javier Marías, “Mal de Amores” from Angeles Mastretta or “Cuentos de Eva Luna” from Isabel Allende.”

“I loved all these Shetland stories, the mixture of old times, isolated places, and the modern world.”

“Each story sucks you in and makes you see another person’s view of what life was like.”
