A time and place not where anything can happen but does happen. Join twelve writers as they reveal the hidden stories of seemingly ordinary people and things whose lives intersect in downtown Frederick, Maryland:
A woman with a peculiar necklace hides a secret in its stones; a group of young airmen ponder relationships and escape routes; a new driver tests her mettle behind the wheel of an old station wagon; a lost cat evades death; a lost dog may lead his owner to it; a young girl follows a ghostly melody; Karma is dispatched on a mission; travelers arrive from another time; visitors come from another world.
Chances are you've crossed paths with such strangers and have never borne them much thought before. Perhaps now, you will.
