In this collection of short stories, characters fall in love, fall out of love, and deal with the fallout of feelings in both cases. They sometimes have messy lives: unfinished business which keeps them from moving on in relationship, or which comes back to haunt them in amusing and poignant ways. All of them want love, or connection. They are rarely content to carry on living their lives in the same way they’ve always done. A restlessness rides in them. Whether it’s to procreate, leave their families, save a child or take a lover, they take matters into their own hands. Sometimes, they meet success.
