The characters in the 18 stories that comprise Restless Dreams, a collection of short stories, share a certain resemblance: tired eyes, a slow trudging step, and the distracted air of someone with lots on her mind, some of it unspeakable. But despite sore feet and an aching heart, each yearns for better days, aims for what is right, and makes it all work somehow. She’s a ...more

The women in these stories are struggling moms, hairdressers, nannies, trying to make it in the gritty reality of the underpaid and overworked.

This is some delicious reading, but don't expect it to be pretty. Pullen knocks the sense into you with these tough girl stories, tapping some deep truths about our times.
