Publisher's Summary

This delightful collection of short stories from acclaimed writer Susan Gabriel (The Secret Sense of Wildflower, a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2012 and an Amazon number one best seller) is rich in humor as well as mystery and meaning.

Whether white or black, living or dead, down home country or upscale urban, Gabriel's characters are quirky, poignant, and deep. They include: 

  • A Gullah woman who uses folk magic to cast her latest spell.
  • A girl coming of age who deals with death in 1940s Tennessee.
  • A wealthy Savannah matriarch with gastrointestinal issues who guards family secrets.
  • A good ol' boy who observes himself shortly after his death.
  • An agoraphobic woman who strikes up a unique friendship with the girl across the street.
  • A band of 70-year-olds that finds healing in a mountain stream.
  • And more.

Narrated in the tradition of Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty, the eight short stories in Grace, Grits and Ghosts: Southern Short Stories are all rooted in the southern landscape - from the steamy coast of Georgia, to the current day Atlanta suburbs, to the ancient Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina.

Pull up a rocker on the front porch, take a sip of your sweet iced tea, and lose yourself in these original stories of soulful southerners and their sultry landscape.
