Linked by the theme of finding our voices, breaking free of constraints, and transformation, the stories in Voice Lessons look at what it means to move into a new way of being, or to reexamine our beliefs and internal stories. A woman who can’t resolve her relationship with her mother takes solace in the wilderness. A man leaves his corporate job impulsively, finding that the noise of ferry boats tugs open his heart. North Dakota hills call to a woman on a passenger train. A deaf woman wants to learn to sing. A moneyed couple’s life falls apart when their acquisitions disappear. These and other stories explore what it means to listen to one’s true voice, and act on it.

 

Cat Holm creates characters who can find hope even on the darkest of nights. A deaf woman yearns to sing, a widower seeks to find the spirit of his wife in the caprices of a young boy, in a car wash, at Walmart, anywhere. How strong the desire to protect the eggshell placed around the heart, as Holm so aptly observes. From her stories about a mother’s death, a writers’ retreat, and homeless children confronted in a city park, readers will discover stories so great and big––just as the first story of this collection is so eponymously named.”

~Kate St.Vincent Vogl, author of Lost & Found: A Memoir of Mothers
