Description

In Jar Fly_, a teenaged Iris Spears teeters on the brink of maturity when an event shatters her innocence — and changes her life forever. In Rain_, a 34-year-old Iris flees a collapsing marriage to return home to Texas and the comfort of her mother’s embrace, only to find that the once-solid ground has shifted beneath her feet. And in Ghoststory, a surprise visit from her estranged husband forces Iris to confront the past and the ghosts that have continued to haunt her. The trilogy is inspired by the rhythm of the cicada — a part of Iris’ young life in the south — the insect that emerges every 17 years to take wing.
