Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

J. California Coopers irresistible collection of new stories explores the universal themes of romance, family, and the hopes that propel peoples dreams. In “As Time Goes By” a young woman singlemindedly pursues material wealth, only to suffer from an empty heart. “Catch a Falling Heart” tells of a slyly arranged marriage, and “The Eye of the Beholder” portrays a plain girls search for love and her own brand of freedom. Wise, earthy and intimate, these stories are moving parables of the human need to seek some sort of satisfaction, just as a wild star seeks a midnight sun.

Synopsis:

With her irresistible storytelling voice, a celebrated author presents this marvelously satisfying suite of stories exploring the universal themes of love, hope, home, and family.
