Please Come Back to Me PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Please Come Back to Me free pdf "Please Come Back To Me" is another remarkable collection by an author the "New York Times" has called "a writer with an unsparing bent for the truth."In "The Nurse and the Black Lagoon" a woman tries to understand why her teenage son has been accused of a disturbing crime. In "Testimony" an adult daughter visiting her father does everything she can to keep herself from remembering what she believes she cannot bear. A man returns to his hometown in "Dear Nicole" to face the realization that he married the wrong woman out of misplaced guilt. "Oregon" portrays the internal struggle of a woman who, having years ago betrayed a secret entrusted to her by her best friend, is tempted to repeat the mistake with the same friend's daughter. And in the collection's novella, "Please Come Back To Me," a young widow seeks faith and comfort--in both natural and supernatural realms--after her husband's death leaves her alone to care for their infant son.On the surface, Jessica Treadway's stories offer realistic portrayals of people in situations that make them question their roles as family members, their ability to do the right thing, and even their sanity. But Treadway's psychic landscapes are tinged with a sense of the surreal, inviting readers to recognize--as her characters do--that very little is actually as it seems.
