Shaking Out the Dead is about love and the human struggle to love and be loved and to recognize when to walk away from those who can’t love back. ​​Artist and fry cook, Paris, loves Tatum but he knows her own demons separate her from true connection. Does love mean waiting for her to break through, or does it mean not expecting her to be any different than she is? Haunted by the past, Tatum longs for a belief in her own worthiness of love. She aims, sometimes successfully and sometimes not, at overcoming her impulse to run and sabotage that closest to her heart. Geneva, older than the other two, is torn between a commitment to an addled and institutionalized husband and her own significant passions. ​A child with a dead mother, Tatum’s niece, enters their world and together they are forced to sort out the boundaries between longing and love, giving and taking, all while recognizing the limited time we have to love and live.​A poetic journey through the landscape of the human heart, reminiscent of the work of Alice Munro and Richard Ford, Shaking Out the Dead is a novel that will take residence in your soul.​
