Short story collections like this are my favorite. There are a couple in here that didn't really resonate with me. But I loved the very human themes woven throughout: forgiveness, redemption, sorrow...all done pretty subtly. I especially loved The Flowers Fall--it made me almost cry--and Turn Right, Turn Left; The Laying Out.
