Abstract:

A collection of stories spanning centuries of time in mercurial Florida examines the decisions and connections behind life-changing events in characters ranging from two abandoned sisters to a conflicted family woman.

The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries. Yet Florida--its landscapes, climate, history, and state of mind--becomes the gravitational center as Groff writes about loneliness, rage, family, and the passage of time.
