CINDERBLOCK HOUSES, by Krista Creel

Cinderblock Houses is a fascinating, powerful collection of eight short stories. The most common theme throughout is that of young girls and women in the rural south trying to make sense of the world around them. It builds a picture of the multitude of social and emotional challenges women face and the many ways they learn how to rise above them. Each story is deeply tied to place, the South, and the collection spans topics of mental illness, ambition, death and hope. 

"Cinderblock Houses is a literary treasure trove of gems. The author has a true talent for setting the scene and putting the reader in characters' minds. You really feel for these characters. One of the things I enjoyed most was the language, in some ways poetic, but in a lively interesting way. One or two words in these stories can speak volumes. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Creel's work! Highly recommended." (Tara - Amazon.com Review, five stars)
