National Indie Excellence Awards, Finalist, 2017: Short Stories
In 16 remarkable stories, the award-winning author of Elizabeth's Field and other books captures the flavor of Maryland's Eastern Shore. While her characters are tied to the reality of the moment, their stories are about the secret life of the heart's yearning.
"The 16 stories in this book follow folks in a small town in Maryland called Puckum and the surrounding rural area....Emotionally resonant stories for readers who feel wistful and unsatisfied with their pasts, surely a universal experience." -- Kirkus Reviews
