The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith Out April 1

This short story collection masterfully weaves folk lore, history and everyday life together into stories that are mystical, lyrical and haunting.  The stories are varied, except for the first and the last which are about the deaths of two women a mother and her daughter many years apart. I am not always a fan of short story collections, but these will stay with me in the back of my mind for a bit like all good characters.
