This is a wonderful and unique collection of stories the likes of which I never read. The stories don’t have common themes except for the fact that they are about pairs who are joined in surprising ways. What a unique way of seeing short stories!
The stories are about a woman who learns that she may not be the biological mother of her own son despite having given birth to him; a brother and sister unique as their mother dies, to search for their lost father; two young sisters take a detour home, unaware of the tragedy that awaits; and a political couple who is shaken by the revelation of their own shared unknown history.
This makes this series of stories poignant and quite penetrating. It is definitely a series of stories that can be read in one sitting–if you dare, or one at a time. Each story creates a soliloquy of depth and breath. I just loved the book!
