  • No Relation

    Paula Carter

    In finely-wrought scenes as charged with meaning as images in haiku, Paula Carter tells the story of finding and then losing a lover and his two young sons. In retrospect, her separation from the boys appears to be the greater loss. For as the years tick by, she realizes that these stepchildren, although never fully her own, may be the only children she will ever have. Bittersweet, captivating, No Relation carries the burden of memory in elegant and seemingly effortless prose.

    --Scott Russell Sanders, author of Dancing in Dreamtime
