Each of the manuscript’s fifteen stories is told by or about a female protagonist, and the stories are organized into three sections that loosely address the transition from innocence through understanding into the realm of experience. Taken together, I hope these stories speak to the many challenges and often bittersweet rewards of offering, receiving, and returning love as imperfect human beings. All of the included stories have been published or are forthcoming in journals such as Gulf Coast, Potomac Review, Carve Magazine, and The Baltimore Review, among others. The manuscript comes in around 75,500 words.
