From the Publisher
Winter Tales is a collection of four stories from the many worlds of Michael O’Brien’s imagination. None of these worlds is the one we inhabit, and yet each of them is founded on the same ultimate realities that underlie our own. In each the fault line between good and evil runs not only through the world but through the hearts of the characters O’Brien brings to life. The stories are illuminated by four of the author’s hauntingly suggestive paintings.
“Each visual image and each work of prose is an incarnation of a word, a statement of faith…It asks the questions: what is most noble and eternal in man? who is he? why does he exist? and what is his eternal destiny?” ~ Michael D. O’Brien
