Tour with us in the country of love

“Moving and often heart-wrenching tales drawn from the depths of human experience.” Kirkus Review

From award winning author Jo Rousseau comes her second book of short fiction. In these beautifully crafted stories, the author creates sensitive and realistic characters who have no passport, no roadmap to the country of love. In “Reading to My Mother,” a family deals with keeping their aging mother at home, questioning whether they can trust their youngest sibling who reappears after years of absence. Is the love of family strong enough to navigate these unfamiliar roads? “Johnsonville” gives us Kathy, a second time bride, on her way to a future husband who will spend his life in prison. Rousseau, in these stories tells us the truth about love…that we are all tourists in the country of love.

How Are You?

Hello readers and writers,

How are you doing in these trying times?

We’re opening a new call for submissions. We’ve received a request to do this and thought it was a great idea. Allow readers and writers a voice in this pandemic. Mostly, we’re looking for journal type of entries, although we’ll look at what you send us. We’re considering shorter works.

It will be published in Delphinium online.

Check out the first entry here under Current Topics. 

Send us your journal entries, your pandemic diaries, an email to your mom, poems, postcard fiction, flash non fiction, photographs, or art. We want to hear your voice, see through your eyes.

We wish you well. Stay safe.
