Growth Marks

This is a “not-really-a-crime” story by my definition of crime stories—no murder, no theft, only the secrets of a grief-stricken mother’s heart—but it was enough of a domestic puzzler that Nancy Pickard selected it for her anthology, "Mom, Apple Pie, and Murder."

I came to know this author from the Deborah Knott mysteries about a judge in North Carolina. It starts with The Bootlegger's Daughter when she runs for this office. I like Maron's style of writing, and it is evocative of the eastern half of the state for me. I live in NC, and not in that part. It seems, however, to ring true. There are some books or chapters that relate more to the mountains, my favorite part of the state although I live in the Piedmont.

This story does not involve Deborah Knott

A nice short story from Margaret Maron, not really a mystery although it does deal with death and guilt. One of the reasons I love digital books is finding these gems, often at no charge, brought back and published separately.

Classic storytelling from Maron! I love her vivid exploration of the characters-living and dead- in only a few short pages. The house which is the primary setting of the book becomes it's own character as well throughout Grace's telling of her life. Great work!
