Lilly loved trilliums. She knew that when they finally appeared, there would be no going back to the hunker-down days of winter
--from "Splendid Purpose" in A Bigger Piece of Blue by Dan T. Cox. That phrase "hunker-down days" is terrific!
Cox's debut collection of short stories bracingly honest and sometimes pretty raw. I like the back-of-the-cover description that says:
"The stories touch on love gone sideways, love rediscovered, and love everlasting."
A Bigger Piece of Blue got a good early review on Kirkus.
I mangled the opening sentences in my recent Book Beginning post, so please go back to here and read what the opening really looks like!
