Product description

Product Description

By the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango rivers in New York's Southern Tier lies a verdant valley called the Triple Cities.

The shoe factories that originally drew thousands of immigrants from across Europe have long moved on.

What remains are the distinct ethnic flavors of a gritty community determined to overcome economic woes, adapt to the rapid changes in society and find true meaning in life.

Consider these stories as pages ripped from a sketchbook. Some are quick studies; others are more detailed portraits inspired by observed characters, whispered gossip, overheard conversations and the local lore of the residents whose neighborhoods are framed by the gilded Orthodox Church domes that span this valley.

You'll find that each tale has its own tone: some are humorous or poignant, others are surprising and haunting.

This was a fun read. Being from the Binghamton area I recognized a lot of the "characters" so it was a real trip down memory lane.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressive 30 January 2015
By Nanjio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Being from the area of NY in which these stories are set, I was drawn to this book. I have not yet read all of the stories, but so far I haven't been impressed. Most of the ones I've read don't seem to have a point. Maybe short stories just aren't my thing?

4.0 out of 5 stars The grace of the everyday 10 November 2014
By Lindsay Edmunds - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you want a change from stories about people with superpowers who save the world, this book by Mary Pat Hyland might be the ticket. It is set in a part of New York about which stories are not often written: the Southern Tier. A strong ribbon of grace weaves through these tales.

One story, "The Rush Hour Angels," is about an elderly widow who takes a physical risk to help a friend and finds herself coming back to life. Another, "The Driveway Ladies Chorus," is about neighbors who sit on lawn chairs at the top of a driveway, drinking a lethal concoction called Chocolate Orgasm and spying on a new neighbor. This is a young woman from Manhattan, who at first doesn't want to know them and then finds they are the key to understanding something about her marriage.

The characters deal with aging and growing up, parenthood and marriage, love and betrayal, faith and families -- and life in a part of the country acquainted with hard times and trying to adapt to new realities. They lack superpowers, but not stories.

By Darlene - Published on Amazon.com
Mary Pat is such a gifted writer. I love all of her work. As I read the short stories, I almost wished each story was a book unto itself.
Well done Mary Pat!! Looking forward to your next novel!!
