Counting Crows

By Jenni Blackmore  

Paperback $12.95

This collection of stories and poems charts various pathways and detours in the universal quest for love. It’s a journey towards joy which begins with the call of a frog searching for a mate and ends as a woman inadvertently thwarts her own desire as she attempts to construct the perfect token of her love.

Between these two way points, past is tightly bound to present and ready to snap back into focus at the slightest provocation. Needy characters form unlikely liaisons, they stumble over emotional ineptitudes are blindfolded by misguided perception and hampered by too much baggage but eventually routes are discovered that progress beyond sorrow and lead toward sightings of the second crow.
