Read full description of the books:
"A superbly written collection of short stories regarding the strength, love, and conflict of human relationships."
Rating: 5 stars from Pacific Book Review
In a dozen stories linked by a longing for solitude and yearning for connection, the landscapes of Bonds of Love & Blood span Turkey's Saklikent Gorge, a resort in Thailand, a murky swimming pool in Vera Cruz, and the inside of a Baltimore jail.
The twelve stories in this collection have won the Barry Hannah Prize, the Jeanne Leiby Chapbook Award, the ALR Fiction Prize, the Matt Clark Prize, the Ron Rash Award, and others.
The US Review of Books says, "In her collection of twelve brilliantly-written short stories, MacDonald explores the pain and beauty of human relationships...This book shouldn't be amiss in any literary lover's bookshelf."
Kirkus Review says, "With elegant prose enlivened by shards of mean humor, MacDonald captures how hard it is to love and/or trust abroad or at home."
Tracy A. Fischer at Readers' Favorite says, "Wow! Just...wow! I just finished reading the absolutely wonderful collection of short stories by author Marylee MacDonald, Bonds of Love & Blood, and I simply cannot get over how fantastic this book was!"

I'm an award-winning author, writing coach, and caregiver advocate.
My short story collection, BONDS OF LOVE & BLOOD is a finalist in Foreword Reviews INDIEFAB Awards. My novel, MONTPELIER TOMORROW, won the Gold Medal for Drama from Readers' Favorite, and it was a finalist for the Eric Hoffer Prize and for many other awards.
I'm very grateful the novel has gained this recognition, but I'm even more grateful when readers connect with me on Twitter or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/MaryleeMacD.
Like many writers, I began to build a writing resume by publishing in literary magazines, such as American Literary Review, Bellevue Literary Review, The Chattahoochee Review, Folio, Blue Moon Literary & Art Review, Broad River Review, Folio, Four Quarters, New Delta Review, North Atlantic Review, Raven Chronicles, Reunion: The Dallas Review, River Oak Review, Ruminate, StoryQuarterly, The Briar Cliff Review, Yalobusha Review,. My hope was that an agent would see one of my stories and fall in love with it.
That didn't happen, and, of course, the world of publishing has changed so rapidly in the last five years that no one knows what to expect.
Over my lifetime as a writer, many other things have changed. Readers' tastes, for one. Who knew that romance writing would take off or that fan fiction or Steampunk would carve out niches in the literary landscape? I'm intrigued by the energy and enthusiasm of writers who've seized the controls.
I'd far rather write fiction than blog about writing fiction, but I'm finding some pluses there, too. I've made some amazing connections with readers on Facebook, She Writes, and Twitter, and I'm always excited to hear from anyone who reads or writes books.
