From icy Berlin to the sweltering South, Hurricane Season examines what it means to want, to desire and ultimately what it is to experience the dark underside of human emotion. In beautiful prose, you will be submerged within the mind of a suicidal woman and a hopeful but torn mother-to-be. You will experience a hurricane's immense destruction and the various ways we often self-destruct.
In "Burning Desire" a loving wife and mother enjoys shoplifting, and then begins burning her husband's clothes, only to discover that she cannot stop. In "The Hands of the Evangelist" a young boy, scheming to touch a young girl's breast, discovers he has the power to heal.
Karen Bjorneby's exceptional voice and lucid storytelling deliver a powerful punch, and will leave you haunted for nights to come.

Women in crisis predominate, however, and the stories end in San Francisco when tough, brittle Nicky (in “Mimosa”), softened by love and pregnancy and far from her days of suicidal rage, has to confront old demons after her lover is arrested in a drug bust.
