From "the new Alice Munro", nine diamond-hard stories about women and their lives sown with adultery and forbidden pleasures

The women who populate Dorothy Speak's rugged Canadian landscape are headstrong, stubborn, prideful. Long since inoculated against the folly of romance, their relationships often result in anguished episodes of betrayal or abandonment from which they must rise, gather their strewn possessions, and move forth without bitterness or despair. Salvation comes through small acts of defiance -- a shattered greenhouse, a mailbox fouled with liver -- or through the more lasting balm of slow self-recovery. Never judgmental or moralistic, Speak has the marvelous gift for allowing her women to seek their own terms of poetic justice. The result is this highly visceral story collection that reverberates with the truth about modern love.
