Short stories ripped from the pages of reunions, births, deaths, and your diary

Freeman's keen ability to dig in and explore the emotions of people shines in this collection of short stories. This exploration plays out delightfully in characters like Missy Reynolds, whose over-the-top imagination takes her on endless journeys. Then meet Jamie Taylor, a professional woman trapped in the web of her headstrong mother. And there is KC, a tragic victim who stumbles into the path of a friend long forgotten. There is the delightful romance centered around selling illegal liquor and friends that cannot be trusted. The collection also brings to the page the story of a woman who has developed the habit of watching her husband's intimate conquests come in and out of her home; and the tale of Tarah and Chance, whose marriage is strained under the weight of multiple miscarriages.
