Ellen Gilchrist, "Acts of God"

The opening story of Gilchrist's new collection, Acts of God, tells of a couple in their mid-eighties, still very much in love living in the same house where they raised many children. The so-called acts of God are catalysts causing the final event for Will and Amelie. The characterizations of Will and Amelie are tender without being sentimental.

Ellen Gilchrist has published some twenty books. Acts of God published by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, 2014.
