`Linda Holeman's stories deserve to be in everyone's library. They are gems, full of subtle feeling that shifts from one mood to another as easily and as quietly as water takes its shape in fields and rocky places.'(The Bookseller)
`The nine subtly told stories in this collection are filled with memorable characters guarding the secrets of their hearts. Finely tuned moments of memory and truth and pivotal flashes of clarity reveal characters struggling with fear and the anguish of pasts that will not go away. An emotional landscape filled with haunted characters who linger long after the book has been read.'(Books of the Season for Prairie Readers)
`Devil's Darning Needle should prove a turning point for Linda Holeman. While the Winnipeg writer has earned a fine national reputation for her young adult fiction, this new collection of nine short stories, her second for adults, is certain to garner her praise and admiration from every writer across the country.
`Each one of this collection's poignant, finely crafted stories, which in character and setting are often reminiscent of the works of Alice Munro, introduces ordinary people confronting their personal, but not uncommon demons.'(Winnipeg Free Press)
`Flying to Yellow is a gem: the stories are distinct, sparkling, and illuminating. The difficulties and challenges the characters face are not particularly strange or rare...but these stories are nevertheless profound in many ways.'(Winnipeg Free Press) See all Product description
