And Other Short Stories
by Gary McLouth
McLouth’s characters in Natural Causes turn vulnerable moments into acts of insight, love and the kind of heroism that passes for simple good work in a small town. These stories are linked by the intents and intuitions of people determined to do the right thing even as they are destined to endure the realities of circumstance. You could say they act out of strong faith in God and from deep commitments to family, community, and freedom, but don’t ask them to talk about it much.
