“In Good Women, Halle Hill gifts us an unflinching peek at women who are trying, women who are aching, women who are running their hands along the walls of their dark hearts, fumbling for the light. Important and beautifully written, this collection is alive with bite and verve tick-tick-ticking on every page.”—Leesa Cross-Smith, author of Whiskey & Ribbons
“A stunning slow burn brimming with observation, emotion, and incident.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred ReviewThis program and others like this would not be possible without your financial help for which, as always, Pat Conroy Literary Center gratefully thanks you.
