Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

By the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango rivers in New York's Southern Tier lies a verdant valley called the Triple Cities.

The shoe factories that originally drew thousands of immigrants from across Europe have long moved on.

What remains are the distinct ethnic flavors of a gritty community determined to overcome economic woes, adapt to the rapid changes in society and find true meaning in life.

Consider these stories as pages ripped from a sketchbook. Some are quick studies; others are more detailed portraits inspired by observed characters, whispered gossip, overheard conversations and the local lore of the residents whose neighborhoods are framed by the gilded Orthodox Church domes that span this valley.

You'll find that each tale has its own tone: some are humorous or poignant, others are surprising and haunting.

Sobre o Autor

MARY PAT HYLAND has lived in the Southern Tier for most of her life. She is the author of six Amazon Top 100 bestselling novels, all set in Upstate New York: The House With the Wraparound Porch (a family saga), The Terminal Diner (suspense), 3/17 (parody) and the Maeve Kenny Series comprising three books: The Cyber Miracles, A Sudden Gift of Fate and A Wisdom of Owls (humor, chick lit). Mary Pat enjoys gourmet cooking, gardening, teaching the Irish language and exploring the Finger Lakes region.

This was a true delight to read! Being from the Southern Tier it was so amazing to read the stories & be transformed into the EXACT places that she was referring to. I have grown up with many of these "characters" in the book vicariously through my Grama who was actually there! Masty Hubah.... my grams "bro"! The places & times may have "changed" but the old school feel will live on forever! Thank you Mary Pat!!! 👍👏 Kudos & keep them coming! Much love &success to you!

This was a fun read. Being from the Binghamton area I recognized a lot of the "characters" so it was a real trip down memory lane.

Being from the area of NY in which these stories are set, I was drawn to this book. I have not yet read all of the stories, but so far I haven't been impressed. Most of the ones I've read don't seem to have a point. Maybe short stories just aren't my thing?

4.0 de 5 estrelas The grace of the everyday 9 de novembro de 2014
Por Lindsay Edmunds - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle
If you want a change from stories about people with superpowers who save the world, this book by Mary Pat Hyland might be the ticket. It is set in a part of New York about which stories are not often written: the Southern Tier. A strong ribbon of grace weaves through these tales.

One story, "The Rush Hour Angels," is about an elderly widow who takes a physical risk to help a friend and finds herself coming back to life. Another, "The Driveway Ladies Chorus," is about neighbors who sit on lawn chairs at the top of a driveway, drinking a lethal concoction called Chocolate Orgasm and spying on a new neighbor. This is a young woman from Manhattan, who at first doesn't want to know them and then finds they are the key to understanding something about her marriage.

The characters deal with aging and growing up, parenthood and marriage, love and betrayal, faith and families -- and life in a part of the country acquainted with hard times and trying to adapt to new realities. They lack superpowers, but not stories.
