Accidental Birds of the Carolinas: Stories about newcomers and natives, and the healing powers of the rural South
LIKE BIRDS BLOWN OFF COURSE IN A GREAT STORM, the characters in these connected stories need a place to roost—a place to settle long enough to learn the secrets of their own hearts. They find that place in fictional Ambler County, North Carolina, by the banks of the Sissipahaw River. From a heartbroken city girl to a runaway bride, from an old-timer with regrets to a Yankee retiree, from a New Ag...e farmer to an African American midwife, from an English explorer to an Eno Indian —all are looking for a way to connect, a way to heal, a way home.
"Here is a field guide to the human species in transition...The three longest of these splendid stories are like novels in nutshells, Alice Munro style." —Doris Betts, author of Beasts of the Southern Wild and Souls Raised from the Dead
