CELEBRATING THE HUMAN SPIRITA dazzling duet in a parking lot at dawn, a pair of work gloves forgotten in a tree, a child's toy lost from a car window, an autograph book rescued from an antique store, the search for an estranged father ... these are among the engines that drive this diverse collection of short stories.

With a keen eye for emotion and detail, Bovier proves herself a master of the short story genre. Her tales exhibit grace, power and gentle wit as they invite readers to consider questions of faith and the promise of hope implicit in the joys and sorrows of human experience.Constance Bovier is the author of two non-fiction inspirational books: More God, a spiritual memoir, and From the Crucible, an exploration of the diversity of faith and addiction recovery in the lives of twenty women and men. She lives with her husband, Peter Wolfe, in the Houston area where she writes, teaches, leads retreats and offers spiritual direction to others on the journey of faith.
