Send My Roots Rain

 

By Ibis Gómez-Vega

 

First runner-up in the 1990 Spinsters/Aunt Lute Fiction Contest

 

Carole Rio, an artist running from her past, is invited to a small Texas border town to paint murals in a church—but the church has burned down in a catastrophic fire. Carole becomes the catalyst for the town's release of its collective guilt, and as the community rebuilds and heals, she faces her own terrifying nightmares and confronts her sexual identity. Send My Roots Rain reveals how memory and land can form potent ties, and how unexpected change has the power to heal and transform lives.

An intriguing, compelling story—well told.
