"Janice Kulyk Keefer inbvites us to take up residence with a host of brilliantly realized characters who are also travelling -- some to the cool elegance of Europe or imagined passions of England and North America -- others through a time of uncertain bloom in youth or to a final 'crossing over' at thte end of their days. In all, the separate girls and women of these remarkable stories form a cohesive whole -- a continuum -- from childhood to marraige, divorce, middle age, retirement, and death. In many there is the struggle to escape the limits of their own limitations, to step beyond and leave behind. To travel becomes both a journey and arrival, witheach story offering a precise and engaging itinerary of human nature." - f rom the dustjacket.
