Water Street cover September's Book
Water Street
by Crystal Wilkinson

The stories in this collection, Crystal Wilkinson’s second, show us both the exterior and the interior lives of the people on Water Street, a small-town community where everybody seems to know everybody’s business—but where the hearts of the neighbors still hold their secrets. As various members of the community tell their stories, we see them through others’ eyes as well as their own, learning some of the reasons behind the choices that have surprised or puzzled or dismayed their neighbors and families. Combining vivid physical descriptions with insight, wisdom, and deep compassion, Wilkinson creates a set of living, breathing characters who could be anyone’s neighbors.
