These are tales of the Maiden, Mother, and Crone. Each short story is a chapter in a woman's life, the narration of her thoughts, demons, and joys. From sisters dancing at an art festival, searching for the perfect garden bench, to the startling shock of a first senior discount, to Frienemies that raise children, travel, and grow old together. "Soliloquy: Beyond Town Limits" progresses through the hidden realms of child molesting,meth labs and misunderstood animal hoarding. We coast the Midwest backroads through every momʼs nightmare, a lost child, and the aging drama of invisibility, "fifty shades of ordinary." A verbal nightcap awaits the reader at the end of the book! Two lesbians and a cat, and a psychic in a red-neck town, offer unique novelty and sparkle.
I recommend this book to every lover of short stories, mainly but not exclusively women. Hellman and O’Dell have given us an excellent piece of literature, and I will keep my copy among my favorite books. If you, too, like books where details are as precious as the message, then Soliloquy is the right read for you.
