Reviews

Starred Review. Every element in this collection of scintillating linked short stories is surprising, pleasurable, and stealthily affecting.--Donna Seaman
From a farm birth in 1908 to an MRI in 1999--Fulton's stories are sublime distillations, not only of the individual lives they so eloquently describe, but also of the eras throughout which the formidable Garrahan family endures.
A beautiful collection of tales recounting imagined lives and realistic depictions of the 20th century wrapped in perfectly detailed decades....Fulton makes the universal human struggles - the tribulations of birth, death, aging, loneliness, betrayal, altruism and love--and achievements of her characters accessible to a wide audience. Fulton's short stories possess soul with unmistakable sincerity and emotion built from more than fiction alone.--Kathryn Andryshak
