‎Author Jann Everard’s debut short story collection, Blue Runaways (Stonehewer Books $23.95), delves into themes of love and loss through the journeys of its characters. Some women portrayed in these stories are grieving, others are seeking second chances. They navigate turning points in their lives across diverse settings, from Iceland to Bali, and Canada’s backcountry. Through nuanced exploration, Everard confronts the universal fears of death, love’s uncertainties, and the transient nature of promises. With vivid landscapes and empathetic characterizations, Blue Runaways offers a multifaceted exploration of the human experience, reminding readers that amidst sorrow, there is solace in shared experiences. 9781738993307
