In well-crafted sketches of the shifting nature of love and the complicated territory that divides people from their friends, readers discover, as editor Ellen Fagg notes, suffering in the promised land, and why a woman might stay. Or leave.Among the contributors are national bestselling author Pam Houston, Flannery OConnor Award recipient Dianne Nelson, Association for Mormon Letters Best Book Award winner Pauline Mortensen, and nationally published authors Katharine Coles and Patricia McConnel.Houston tells of a young woman who finds she doesnt have any true memories of her parents touching each other and what this means to the situation she finds herself in.

Nelsons story is set in southern Utah where a family is caught in the fallout from a nuclear test blast. Mortensens protagonist is a single mother of six- Coles writes about a woman trapped in a small town where ranchers and environmentalists battle for turf- and McConnels character is a recluse living in the high desert.All of these contain something of the authors own experiences. Sharing a commitment to tell the truth in fiction, their tales are therefore all the more enchanting.
