Like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole and arriving in a strange and exotic land, reading one of Miranda Hill’s stories is to be delivered to an almost dreamlike place where familiar themes in fiction—love, loss, family, identity, faith—reveal themselves in delightfully unexpected, unsettling ways.
— Quill & Quire

In nine stories, Miranda Hill explores the consciousness of a modern teenage girl trying to navigate an embarrassing sex ed class, a middle-aged country-village minister in the 19th century who is experiencing a devastating crisis of faith, a young pilot's widow coping with her grief by growing a Victory Garden during World War II, and a group of contemporary professional women living on a gentrified big-city street whose routines are thrown into disarray with the arrival of a beautiful, bohemian neighbour.
