Short stories by Ellen Prentiss Campbell

In this collection of eleven short stories, Ellen Prentiss Campbell explores loss and yearning, hope and fear, and the tension between imagination, memory, and reality. She takes her characters and readers to moments when the boundary between past and present crumbles. Campbell uncovers drama and mystery beneath the surface of daily life: a young mother struggles with grief on the eve of the Cuban Missile Crisis; a child tries to understand her father's madness; an elderly woman prepares to sell the inn that has been her life's work. Campbell, a practicing psychotherapist, brings the art of listening for the unspoken, and expressing the unspeakable, to these pages.
