All Saints

Finished May 20
All Saints: Stories by K.D. Miller

This collection of linked stories has at its heart a small Anglican church, All Saints. The stories range over decades and we see characters at various stages of their lives. The priest at the church, Simon, appears in several of the stories. The stories range widely with the characters embodying people at various points in their lives. At the heart of all the stories though is relationship. The relationships range from romantic love, to abusive relationships, from friendship to guidance, We see the characters vulnerability, the side they don't show to others, but we also see their capacity to care, to love, and to be a part of their community.
Some of the stories are disturbing, and some touching. All capture the reader and bring them into the lives as they are experienced.
