“Beth Gilstrap has the voice of a storm. The characters in these stories, through the grit and the chew of their southern drawls, rumble along the rough edges of their days and the ways they can’t stop running from, or maybe toward, with the threat of a downpour. Here are women who prop their boots on the dash and dare every town, women who settle strangers down deep like a second glass of wine. Gilstrap’s debut collection is a deluge of longing, a hard reckoning with the long distances of missing we all travel.”–Jill Talbot, author of The Way We Weren’t: A Memoir
