Description

Eleven new stories demonstrate the emotional power and assured style that have earned Meloy praise and devotion. Propelled by a great instinct for storytelling, this collection is about the battlefields in seemingly harmless spaces: kitchens, living rooms, cars. Set mostly in the American West, the stories feature small-town lawyers, ranchers, doctors, parents, and children, exploring moral quandaries of love, family, and friendship. A ranch hand falls for a law-school graduate who appears unexpectedly in his remote Montana town. A man opens his door to find his dead grandmother standing on the steps. Two women weigh love and betrayal during an early snow. Meloy examines the tensions between having and wanting as her characters try to keep hold of opposing forces in their lives.
