Overview

  • 8 Accomplished Authors
  • 10 Memorable Stories
  • Compelling Characters at a Crossroads
  • What Choices Will They Make?

The emotive stories in this anthology take readers to the streets of New York and San Francisco, to warm east coast beaches, rural Idaho, and Italy, from the early 1900s, through the 1970s, and into present day.

A sinister woman accustomed to getting everything she wants. A down-on-his luck cook who stumbles on goodness. A young mother who hides $10 she received from a stranger. The boy who collects secrets. A young woman stuck between youth and adulthood. Children who can't understand why their mother disappears.

The distinct and varied characters in Distant Flickers stand at a juncture. The loss of a spouse, a parent, a child, one's self. Whether they arrived at this place through self-reflection, unexpected change, or new revelations-each one has a choice to make.
