Family Ties: Thicker than Water; Does it Hurt?; Like Mother, Like Daughter; My Forever Friend

By Daralyse Lyons   

Blood is thicker than water, or so they say. In this collection of short stories, you’ll meet a daughter whose father was shot, a niece whose aunt had leukemia, a bulimic woman who inherited her eating disorder from her mother, and a child of abuse and her secret friend.

Each of hese protagonists seeks to find love and belonging in their different family systems (or outsideof them). Alternately comedic, tragic, thoughtful, and emotionally evocative, these stories explore the meaning of family.
