About the Book

Human relationships can be intriguing, heartbreaking, funny, frustrating, and soulful, among other things. Sometimes, all at the same time. In a compilation of twenty short stories told from a faith-based perspective, a band of diverse characters shares a glimpse into their lives, relationships, and experiences. Set in Northern Ireland, New York, and many places in between, each tale offers an opportunity to emotionally relate to the age-old mystery of how friendships, romantic or otherwise, unfold. When eleven-year-old Agee finds a strange note swirling in the air above him, his path soon crosses with that of a desperate woman who needs him more than he knows. Buber is a production supervisor who is grieving his next-door neighbor’s death when he meets a woman who invites him to her church, drawing out a side of him that had been lying dormant for a long time. 20 Short Ones shares faith-based stories that examine the beginnings of relationships with a keen eye and hope toward the future.
