All My Springs: Journey of a Lifetime

In All My Springs: Journey of a Lifetime, author Carol L. Evans invites readers to share a life (her life)—that like spring itself—is constantly being renewed and reborn. This lovely and lively collection of personal essays, short stories and poems will quickly compel readers to find a comfortable chair and quiet time to savor the newness of Evans’ writing.

The writing is mature, but not stale. It is skilled, yet extremely poetic. Her short story, “The Little House in the Cul de Sac,” is a beautiful, yet disturbing tale of mental illness. In it, the narrator deftly unfolds a poignant modern-day tale of a deeply troubled mind wresting with reality and normalcy.
