Blackberries, Blackberries by Crystal Wilkinson

Blackberries, Blackberries is a beautifully written collection of short stories by Crystal Wilkinson that manages to bring both laughter and tears to the reader as awareness of the realness of the stories captures the heart and mind.  The stories explore mother-daughter relationships, love, soul searching, desire, loss, servitude, adultery, violence, and always the struggle to know one’s self through characters that leap off the page immersing the reader in their daily lives.  Wilkinson’s use of vernacular and descriptions provide a taste of Kentucky that is all at once welcoming, unique, refreshing, familiar, provocative, comforting and honest.
