FROM WV WRITERS PRESIDENT EMERITUS SANDY TRITT:
It is with great pleasure that I share the release of Patsy Pittman's short story collection, Blood Kin and Other Strangers. Patsy is one of the state's most prolific and published authors, not to mention one of the very best. Long after my eyes were exhausted, I kept reading these stories--they were simply too good to put down. I know of no better gift than a gift of the heart--and this book is full of heart.
In this collection, Patsy In this collection, Patsy Evans Pittman focuses with deft precision on that most intimate of mysteries—the family. The characters and settings reflect the author’s Appalachian heritage and occasionally her grandmother’s mountain dialect.
Maggie, torn between her twelve-year-old-daughter and her Alzheimer’s afflicted mother, faces the problems of the “sandwich generation.” Rachel wonders if her marriage will survive her unplanned pregnancy. And nine-year-old Carla breaks two of the “Thou Shalt Nots” and suffers the consequences of a guilty conscience.
Then there are those caught in the web of their own deceit. Godfrey Burke learns it was not a good idea to leave Cousin Joyce at the altar. And Horace Moneypenney, bless his heart, discovers that “poor, simple Sally” has Outfoxed him.
