“These stories are sweet and satisfying and so well told.
K. C. Ireton achieves something substantial in these brief tales: she reveals the true power and weight of kindness.” —Christie Purifoy, author of Placemaker and Garden Maker
In the title story, set in the 1980’s in England, American college student Maggie discovers a stash of sonnets in the attic of her great-grandmother’s Herefordshire home and sets out to unravel the mystery of their authorship, finding friendship and love along the way.
Four additional stories round out this debut fiction collection. Whether depicting the affection of a daughter for her mother, the love of a woman for her husband, the friendship of women in community, or the simple kindness of a stranger, these stories are quiet and gladsome tales of ordinary people learning to trust and love in extraordinary ways.
