The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from Kathleen D. Miller’s All Saints, published by Biblioasis. All Saints, all eccentric: linked short stories animate the lives of rectors, church ladies, and aging urban faithfuls. This collection presents the secret small tragedies of an Anglican congregation struggling to survive, it delves into the life of Simon, the Reverend, and the lives of his parishioners: Miss Alice Vipond, a refined and elderly schoolteacher, incarcerated for a horrendous crime; a woman driven to extreme anxiety by an affair she cannot end; a receptionist, and her act of improbable generosity; a writer making peace with her divorce. Effortlessly written and candidly observed, All Saints is a moving collection of tremendous skill, whose intersecting stories illuminate the tenacity and vulnerability of modern-day believers.
