After it Rains

By (author): Bill Haugland

After it Rains, Bill Haugland’s first short story collection, gently probes the human psyche and deftly reveals our foibles.

What happens to a man who faces the loss of home and property after the worst economic downturn in decades? Is a novelist’s coma, in fact, a hidden doorway? Can a photograph, found in an antique store, be the key to a turbulent past? What drives a young man to leap from a bridge in a failed suicide attempt? Should a wife and mother decide to abandon her family in a desperate moment of introspection? Does a blind boy possess a talent that borders on the supernatural?
