Presbyterian Crosswalk: Short Story
Authors: Gowdy, Barbara
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
“Sometimes Beth floated. Two or three feet off the ground, and not for very long, ten seconds or so.” Gifted eleven-year-old Beth believes she can cure her hydrocephalic playmate Helen if they just chant hard enough. But are their words enough?
Hailed as “remarkable and uplifting” by The Globe and Mail and published to equally glowing acclaim around the world, Barbara Gowdy’s groundbreaking collection of stories, We So Seldom Look on Love, pushes past the limits of convention into lives that are fantastic and heartbreakingly real.
HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperCollins short-stories collection to build your digital library.
