There is a place where sorrows pile up like snow and rest in your hair like cherry blossoms. Boys have wings, monsters fall in love, women fade into nothingness, and the bones of small children snap like twigs. Darkness will surely devour you--but it will be exquisitely lovely while doing so.
Mercedes M. Yardley’s Beautiful Sorrows is an ephemeral collection encompassing twenty-seven short tales full of devastation, death, longing, and the shining ribbon of hope that binds them all together.

"Beautiful Sorrows... delicate prose with devastating impact. Mercedes Yardley is a female Joe Hill, and I fear her 'Broken' will haunt me to my grave." --F. Paul Wilson, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Keep and The Tomb
"Mercedes Yardley's debut collection, Beautiful Sorrows, holds its hands out, palms up, no tricks, no irony, no clever retreats from honest emotions. Life's travails inhabit these pages, and she renders them beautifully." --Christopher Barzak, author of One for Sorrow and The Love We Share Without Knowing
"Mercedes M. Yardley has the Right Stuff. She demonstrates that in her wonderful collection of short stories: Beautiful Sorrows. Each story is a different kind of gem, the bagful priceless." --Gene O'Neill, Bram Stoker Award™-winning Author of The Taste of Tenderloin and Double Jack"
