    Mike Robertson is one of those rare male authors who writes female characters as well as male ones. No one-dimensional foils for the male protagonist here; his female characters are fully realized. This is an author who cares deeply about his characters--about all of humanity, it would seem--and the reader soon finds herself caring deeply as well. Still, although the stories are character driven, the action generates sufficient momentum even for this very impatient reader. Each tale is woven around a defining or pivotal moment in the lives of a wide array of protagonists at every stage of life, and you find yourself embracing those moments as if they were your own. But what, above all, makes these stories worth reading is their utter lack of sentimentality, their stoic wisdom--each one set in a landscape of anxiety or menace but ultimately informed by a luminous sense of hope. Get the book. Read the stories. Once you've read them, you'll find yourself going back to them again and... More > again, to revisit characters for whom, in the briefest glimpse of their lives, you've come to feel a most welcome sort of love.< Less
