This collection contains seven of Rachel Elizabeth Cole's touching short stories.
In "Fallen Leaves," a mother must come to terms with the bad blood between her late husband's grandmother and herself. In "Listen to the Rain," a young couple going through a rough patch struggles to find happiness. In "Caring for Lily," a young mother wrestles with her decision to return to work. In "For Good or For Bad," a dissastisfied wife must decide if she'll risk everything for her ex-boyfriend. In "Is This Seat Taken?," two strangers connect briefly at a bus station. A woman cleaning out her dead mother’s attic digs through old feelings about the adoption of her son and the woman she swore she'd never be like in “Boxes of Dust.” And, in “Miss Popularity,” will a hallway encounter ruin a young teen girl’s chances at her new school?
Heartfelt, bittersweet, and poignant, these short stories explore the moments where we spread our fledgling wings, take that leap, and learn to fly.
