Synopsis: Maclean's Editors' Pick: Best Books for Summer Reading

From the Journey Prize winner Holley Rubinsky comes a collection of linked stories that paints no-nonsense characters with a heartfelt hand. Rubinsky unearths the compulsions that rile ordinary lives, and the dreams and grave losses that haunt them. Set in the fictitious town of Ruth, BC, the cast of these wildly tragi-comic dramas disturb, shock, confound and impress. Some find their lives dusted with hope and redemption; others are not so easily saved.
