An infant is carried by a tornado over a mile and survives with only scratches. A woman forgives and befriends the mother of her son's murderer. A newborn declared dead for twelve hours in a city morgue regains consciousness.  
     This collection of stories serves as reminder that no matter the dire circumstance that surrounds the individual, there is always hope. There is always goodness to be found in this world.

" intelligent, current, insightful novel that uniquely explores how corporate greed affects individual consumers. It's also deeply personal and evocative, and philosophically poignant, in its exploration of how choices indelibly alter our life course."

                                   ---Karyn Saemann, US Review of Books

Twice you sang it
and then it was gone.
But on blustery winter days
it comes back to me,
and I feel hopeful
all over again.
So I open the windows,
and I listen
to the rain
and the wind.
I listen for your chant,
the succession of minor tones
that rose and fell
so freely.
Once again, I wonder
what made you sing 
such a haunting, wordless melody,
and what made me
sing with you.
You upstairs,
me downstairs,
with never a word spoken between us,
for the length of a song.


--Maria Naccarato, ​Neighbors

There are two stories for every life; the one you live, and the one others tell.
