Rain and Other Stories
Rain and Other Stories is a book of eleven short stories about people in crisis. Stories like Rope and The Last Day are about educators who have reached crisis moments in their lives and must find some kind of resolution.
A man wants to live forever in Immortal, and in The River and Snow Falling readers will find out how dangerous it is to betray the trust of the McKinley women. Rain tells the tale of a young boy abducted by a rebel army in Africa, and The Green Chain deals with the dangers of working in a sawmill in Northeastern Montana.
All of these stories are about the pivotal moments of ordinary people, and their responses show us something about how we survive as human beings.
