Synopsis

This is a collection of short stories, very "southern" stories. The first section relates family tragedies and triumphs and touches on race relations as they existed in the decade of the 1940s. The second section consists of Christmas stories. The author has tried to select narratives that speak to most families:the problem of the elderly person in the home, jealousy over family properties, love affairs, unrequited love, young dreams and ambition, greed. Yet most of the stories dramatize at least one character trying to give back to the world a portion of its broken heart.
