Azimuths, by R.A. Morean

Regular price $12.95

What sifts beneath the sand are mysteries--a fossilized whale, a particle accelerator, and calculated dreams of escape. Above live five unique women: Hattie, who tries to find her dead mother's face within her own; Kinni, the veiled survivor of Nagasaki; Melody, the orphan who nurses wayward children; Lani, who uses a camera to create distances; and Oxena, who can't decide if she loves or hates her husband of forty years. As the men struggle with the bloodstain of history, Azimuths emerges as a story of emotional and physical paralysis. Each character remains on a singular trajectory, yet all are connected as they try to figure out who and why to love, and how to move forward with their lives.
