Rona Altrows’s short stories go to the core of what it is to be human—to cherish a departed mate beyond reason, to love a child to distraction, to keep the faith with a friend no matter what, to laugh in the face of self–doubt. This collection delivers a humorous yet poignant series of tales told from the perspectives of women.

“Altrows steers clear of redemptive epiphany. There is no cure for life but there is balm, sometimes, in the smallest of pleasures.”
-Jim Bartley, The Globe and Mail
