In Her Dreams

Snow falls on the grass on this almost March day, trees already in prepubescent bloom. What the fuck is happening?

5 Stars #BookReview: “Kudos to you, JC for enchanting us once again – GEORGIA PINE  Whoa…what a ride!!! Somehow Jacqueline Cioffa managed to tie up some loose ends from her first novel, The Vast Landscape (a must read if you haven’t already) and stir up a whole lot more delving into the narrator’s story as well as those connected to her. I literally read it in a couple of days
