Everything in this House Breaks

COMING SOON

A Story Collection by Sandra Bunting.
Published by Gaelóg Press, New Brunswick, Canada.

The chance of  new life comes in many guises. It may be malevolent such as a dark closet, a clutch of silver by a miser or the dreams of a failed bullfighter. On the contrary, it may be a small plant growing despite the odds, a smile to brighten the day or the delight of naming a cabin in the woods. Mostly set on the east coast of Canada, the stories range from the sureal to snipets of the joy and pathos of reality.
