"BRANCHES contains three short stories about family relationships in general, parent-child relationships in particular.
In 'Korean Mother is Dying' a divorced mother deals with the difficulties of raising a teenage daughter while coming to grips with her own past.
In 'A Hand to Hold' a mother and her son form a bond over an elderly woman who lives across their street.
In ''Jump!' the Water Master Cried' a father brings her daughter to meet her grandfather for the first time to see if there's anything left to salvage of a damaged relationship.
While mostly known for his horror and suspense novels and short stories, here author Joel Arnold presents a trio of emotionally charged literary shorts that just may leave you crying, cheering, or both."
