Magnified WorldPaperback - 2012
What's a girl supposed to do after her mother kills herself by walking into the Don River with her pockets full of unpolished zircon stones? Maggie removes the zircon stones from the inventory of the family's New Age shop and opens up for another day of business. Then her blackouts begin, as do the visits from a mysterious customer who offers help for Maggie's blackouts and her project of investigating her mother's past in the American South. "Magnified World" dramatizes the battle between the head and the heart and the limitations of both in unlocking something as complicated as loss.
