Home Fires

Home fires can be warm and cozy - and they can also be magnetic, volatile and just a bit dangerous.

Book Description

These short stories, written from BC's north coast, unfold mostly at home, and mostly in the family. A woman writes to her sisters, remembering their weddings and her own; a little boy comes home from his paper route early, looking a bit pale; a mother takes her children to Prince George on the train, to stay with their musician dad in a seedy hotel. There are quiet moments in these stories, but quite a few more urgent and hilarious and shocking and desparate moments.
