Seasons by author Gay Sizemore Sauer is a collection of poignant and wistful short stories and poems that explores the lives, loves, and quiet dignity of the elderly and infirm. In this work, this marginalized and forgotten segment of society finds its metaphor in the form of an incapacitated old woman whose mind is sharp but whose body is wanting. Short on physical stature, she makes up for it with quiet wisdom to spare. We follow her through a year of her life as she deals with memory, reminiscence, wheelchairs, and the infirmities of aging with dignity, humanity, and grace. Along the way author Sauer sprinkles in a tender poem to underscore the drama and complete the emotional moment. Written in masterful, poetic prose, Sauer has delivered a collection of short stories that pushes all the right buttons for fiction fans, while building multi-dimensional characters and flawless emotional moments that will keep any reader spell-bound. This is short fiction that ranks right up there with the best in the genre, and will surely please short story fans, or anyone who just loves good stories well told. Seasons is one page-turner best read with a hanky.
