Carol Windley's debut collection of short stories is lit with the grey lucency of British Columbia's west coast, where often the line between sky and water is nearly imperceptible, where memory and the eye are sometimes deluded into seeing just outside the range of ordinary light. Here, with the dark and impenetrable rain forest as a backdrop, Windley's characters take their small but significant journeys and cross the invisible lines that form the boundaries of the psyche.
