“The Way Home by Carol Holland March includes a novella and eight additional stories in which she writes about relationships in a way that takes us into a special world of energetically charged incidents and seemingly impossible feats. It's the best type of story-fest: in which fantasy crosses into reality and back again. I highly recommend you explore the offerings in The Way Home.”
