(Published by NuAge Editions 1995)


Event Magazine:

[Patricia Stone’s] style favours a longer version of the short story form usually structured around a quartet of main characters with others in the wings, summoned forth for brief but memorable cameo performances. . . . The tone . . . is kept this side of the abyss by Stone’s fine eye for detail, for the intricate blend of history and temperament within every relationship. . . . We sense Stone is having some fun pushing the characterization envelope.

Halifax Book Store News:

It’s obvious Stone’s strengths lie in the ability to capture the nuances of her protagonists’ inner lives and to make those lives ultra-real for the reader.

Canadian Book Review Annual:

Patricia Stone’s stories manage to be intellectually stimulating without being "intellectual."
