News From Heaven
ON SALE NOW!
In ten interconnected short stories, Jennifer Haigh returns to the vividly imagined world of Bakerton, Pennsylvania, a coal mining town rocked by decades of painful transition. From its heyday during two world wars through its slow decline, Bakerton is a town that refuses to give up gracefully, binding — sometimes cruelly — succeeding generations to the place that made them. With a revolving cast of characters — many familiar to fans of Baker Towers — News from Heaven looks unflinchingly at the conflicting human desires for escape and for connection, and explores the enduring hold of home.
