Fiction. What a pleasure to read SHOW HER A FLOWER, A BIRD, A SHADOW. In story after story Peg Alford Pursell creates vivid characters and piercing situations. Nothing is too small for her imagination--a wren on a branch, a hole in a sock, ginger tea--and nothing too dangerous--a girl hit by a stone, a mother and daughter struggling. In a matter of a few words, a few lines, Pursell transports us into vivid situations of loss and longing. This is a dazzling and lovely collection.
