Eight women who married eight brothers hatch a secret plan in the woods. A Georgia boy who never speaks tries to keep order in his town. A man who survives the end of the world sets off on a comical quest. A portrait plots revenge, a farmer tries his luck, a library janitor looks for love, and a desperately tired wife loses it. A man in a diner discovers he's not alone. These are a few of the many stories that can be found in this book. This anthology was collected from the numerous writings of five siblings-John, Charles, Sherriton, James and Josh Sweet. The stories came pouring out of their imaginations, were flavored by experience and time, and came together on these pages. The compilation of these stories began in their younger years and continued into adulthood; since then, though, life has taken them in different directions. Even so, the stories survive, and now those five siblings, older and wiser, have put them here to share with the world. Their tales, unrelated and diverse, contain a bit of the authors themselves in each one. Given how different each writing style is, it's their hope that A Handful of Sweets will have something for everyone.
