The wedding that turns feast into fiasco; the childhood games that foreshadow life’s realities; dreams of romance shattered and reborn; professional and creative identities forged, challenged, and affirmed; farewells presaged and paid – these eight poetic and poignant stories, reflected through the prism of love and loss, ultimately offer the reader epiphanies of renewal. New fiction by the award-winning author of Raising Rufus: A Maine Love Story & The Whaler’s Bride . . . A fine collection, her best so far with a command of dialogue, flashbacks handled gracefully, and seamlessly and stream-of-consciousness very un-self-conscious.
