Life Is Short But Wide

by

Life Is Short But Wide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like the small towns J. California Cooper has so vividly portrayed in her previous novels, Wideland, Oklahoma, is home to ordinary Americans with big hearts. Among them are newlyweds Irene and Val, who graciously allow their neighbors, Bertha and Joseph, to build a house on their land. Together the couples have three daughters, all who struggle to find love and success in the changing world. But although the years may bring hardship and heartache, they also teach the importance of living one’s life boldly and squeezing out every possible moment of joy.

 

An irresistible story of faith and family, Life Is Short But Wide proves that no matter who you are or what you do, you are never too old to chase your dreams.

Synopsis:

In language both spare and direct yet wondrously lyrical, "Life Is Short But Wide" is an irresistible story of family that proves one is never too old to chase dreams. Cooper's stories reveal a meticulous attention to the nuances of African-American life--"San Francisco Chronicle."
