Charity and Hope share a home separated by seventy years: from the Civil War to the Great Depression. Their experiences converge and diverge, thru tragedy and triumph, but each has a growing awareness of the other. The boundaries of time are blurred, while the boundaries of place stand in stark relief. From clues to visitations, each becomes a constant presence in the other’s life.
“‘Bitter Angel’ is a ghost story the way all our lives are ghost stories–a harkening back and circling round the tales that came before and after us, and the ones still yet to be written.”–Naomi Washer, author and publisher
