News from Heaven
Place. The fictional coal mining town of Bakerton, Pennsylvania, is the place that links the ten stories in a new collection from Jennifer Haigh titled, News from Heaven. The stories present the lives of people in or from Bakerton in prosperity and in decline. After I finished the last story, I felt as if I knew Bakerton and these people. Haigh’s prose uses just the right amount of descriptive language and character development to complete each story. Any reader who likes short stories and finely written prose should consider reading this fine collection. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase News from Heaven from amazon.com.
