Award-winning writer Charlotte Bacon illuminates the unexpected ambiguities of women's lives in a beautifully crafted collection of stories about women who have arrived at awkward edges in their lives--adolescence, or old age, sick or pregnant. Many come to abrupt discoveries or stumble on startling secrets. Despite their range in age and situation, all share the common goal of trying to reassemble their lives.
