Love, the force that sustains life, holds up the pages of this book of short stories. A librarian's practical affection for her new assistant; a young woman coming to terms with her mother not loving her; two wives struggling with the memory of an unfaithful and bigamous husband; an elderly woman whose heart retains a soft spot for her park friends even as her limbs are ravaged by illness; despairing love, unrequited feelings, an illicit affair ... The love for life infuses hope, energy and joy in these stories that draw you into the heart and soul of characters that are palpably real and ethereal.
