Blossom and Loss, by Jeanne Julian


Beguiling us with images of nature, Blossom and Loss then plunges us into stories of characters encountered, travel, love and loss–all at a crossroads, a place between worlds. Jeanne Julian’s endings are gorgeous and dark, raising the hair on the back of the reader’s neck. “The Current” expresses what this beautiful and well-crafted collection will do for the reader:

“For you, a cushioned ride, the company/ of those who care for you, velocity/ and scenery shifting enough/ to help you believe you’re making progress.”

-Lori Desrosiers, author of The Philosopher’s Daughter and Sometimes I Hear the Clock Speak
