How Far She Went by Mary Hood
Mary Hood won the Flannery O’Connor Award for this collection of short stories, and O’Connor’s influence is apparent although without the satiric bite. Each story has a uniquely southern flavor, and the sense of place permeates the works. The title story is particularly stirring in its depiction of a stolid grandmother and her rebellious granddaughter’s uneasy coming to terms.
