About the Book

This volume of collected stories gathers nine tales of unforgettable characters in settings that are both brutally realistic and cast from a spirit world of whimsical imagination. An introspective and imaginative discovery on a primeval Canadian lake; a brave boy defending his family in a struggle between love and hatred, injury and pardon; the despair of a woman trapped on a bridge and held hostage to the witness of the World Trade Center collapse; the sadness, joy, vulnerability, and strength of a young New York City couple who lose each other but keep seeking love; and the quirky narrative of a young Southern girl reporting on the comical entanglements of her Georgia family—these and other tales await you inside this volume of Catching Shadows.
