In nine stories, Miranda Hill explores the consciousness of a modern teenage girl trying to navigate an embarrassing sex ed class, a middle-aged country-village minister in the 19th century who is experiencing a devastating crisis of faith, a young pilot's widow coping with her grief by growing a Victory Garden during World War II, and a group of contemporary professional women living on a gentrified big-city street whose routines are thrown into disarray with the arrival of a beautiful, bohemian neighbour.

"Like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole and arriving in a strange and exotic land, reading one of Miranda Hill’s stories is to be delivered to an almost dreamlike place where familiar themes in fiction – love, loss, family, identity, faith – reveal themselves in delightfully unexpected, unsettling ways."
