by Judy Chicurel - Fiction, Short Stories

In this poignant, evocative debut collection, Judy Chicurel creates a haunting, vivid world, where conflicts between mothers and daughters, men and women, soldiers and civilians and haves and have-nots reverberate to our own time. She captures not only a time and place, but the universal experience of being poised between the past and the future. At once heartbreaking, mesmerizing and nostalgic, Chicurel shows us that no matter how beautiful some dreams are, there comes a time when we must let them go.
