Shannon McKinney announces the publication of Emerald Edges, a collection of short stories.
Emerald Edges is a family of short stories connected by characters and situations. The book which is published by Christian Insight Publications is available on Amazon.com. An underlying theme in most stories is the power of prayer.
Clark Reece, a Seattle reporter, is a reoccurring character in this work of fiction. Reece reconnects with family and with the help of a young girl regains a faith in God, lost after his young son was killed in a tragic accident.
While researching an article, he reconciles with his great aunt Nila, a fiercely loyal, strong-willed business woman. She and Clark are the only surviving members of a family that established a place in the early history of Seattle.
