The linked short stories in For the Love of Strangers feature prairie girl Kathy, but they wind through the working lives and the complicated cultural terrain of a handful of folks who could be anywhere.
These people are tied together in one way or another by the cattle trails on a farm in the Coteau Hills, the alleys of the city, the sandy paths of a lakeside resort, and all the roads in between.
The stories weave through more than twenty years, from 1980 to 2002, they take place in blizzards and barns, northern lakes, weathered towns and prairie cities; at a folk festival, a monastery, a protest march and on a whirlwind tour of the British Isles.
And in more than one berry patch.
