Synopses & Reviews
Life is all about risk. Sometimes you embrace it. Other times, fate forces your hand. A. C. Burch's powerful collection is all about the cliff--the tipping point--the instant we must roll the dice or succumb to the status quo.
Burch's unlikely heroes face life with courage and humor in a tenacious search for meaning and fulfillment. This memorable anthology spans not just distance but the range of human emotion. From coming of age to confronting old age, conquering fear of failure to rekindling a failed romance, the quirky characters of A Book of Revelations are certain to captivate.
