The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from Keeping the Peace by Colette Maitland, published by Biblioasis. A soldier’s wife struggles to reconnect with her daughter after her husband is killed overseas. A willful prostitute refuses the help of the enigmatic and evangelical Jared. A heart attack survivor perplexes his family with a newfound sense of religious euphoria, while a nursing home volunteer struggles against years’ worth of bad behaviour in one of her veteran patients. Character-driven, probing grief and insularity, Colette Maitland’s short fiction debut shows us the price of keeping the peace in a modern small town.
