What Sets Us Apart

One good story is a little like planting one alder tree. The soil-enriching alder is not the first tree you notice in an area, nor are socially engaged stories the quick, sensationalist reads that grab the top spot on bestseller lists. Their value is deeper than that.
They are the kind of books that hit you in that soft spot. Maybe you close your eyes. Maybe you turn the book over in your lap. The book has brought you to a new, unexpected place, and like a good friend, it will stay with you long after the last word has been read.
