A Web of Black Widowsby Scott William Carter
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In these six provocative tales, Scott William Carter takes the reader on a journey to places where love and loss intersect: a grieving tattoo artist makes a cross-country trip with a pregnant woman on the run from her disturbed husband . . . a mysterious artist finds a woman washed up on the beach and feels compelled to paint her . . . a young man who made a disastrous choice in wife is forced to crash weddings with his ghostly bride so she can remain on Earth . . .
Reading these and three other stories, you will be intrigued, moved, and troubled as Carter's clear and engaging prose takes you on a guided tour of the darker corners of the human psyche. But as he writes in his introduction, "There's hope in there, too. There has to be. Otherwise, why write at all?"
