The Solar-Powered Southern Belle consists of eight stories, which deal with the aspirations of eight characters who find themselves not fully equipped, by traditional measurements, to achieve a completely balanced life. Consequently, they must struggle with which parts of their lives they must sacrifice in order to find the satisfying equilibrium they seek. These stories represent author’s continuing exploration of how people who have not been born with any economic or social advantages pursue whatever paths they can find to spiritual or psychological fulfillment.
