An anthology of tales and stories about signs and signals; seen, missed, and misunderstood on the foreshadowing of life’s relationships that sometimes makes the hairs on the back of one’s head stand up.

Have you ever been in a situation where all of those internal warning signals went off but you went forward anyway? Or in a situation where you started to drive forward and then something told you to stop? This anthology is a collection of stories of similar situations that our authors experienced. Read on to find out about their own red flags.
