Each story’s theme begins with an insightful quote. “Trail’s End” starts with Emily Brontë’s words “He’s more myself than I am,” as a woman remembers her husband by hiking a mountain trail they had enjoyed together. “It isn’t what we say or think that defines us, but what we do” by Jane Austen illustrates the meaning of “The Porch Swing.” When an old friend visits the main character, unhappy memories surface, but she realizes how their previous actions were what mattered and not the insincere words she’s hearing now. The focus of these stories is on the women and the choices they make about love, which may surprise, amaze and delight the reader.
