Summary:
Evocative and brimming with redemption, Mary Akers' newest collection BONES OF AN INLAND SEA takes the reader on a journey of exploration and transformation that begins with a 19th century shipwreck, passes through Bikini Atoll's atomic testing, sinks into the heart of a devastating tsunami, and slides forward into a futurist island utopia floating in the Sargasso Sea. Characters connect on remote beaches and forgotten islands, while family ties prove--like the ocean--to be both powerful and unpredictable. These fourteen stories form a captivating mosaic of intertwining narratives that convey a strong sense of the eternal and the possible.
