These enchanting, semi-autobiographical stories and essays - unfolding across the rich tapestry of the American South - chart the struggles, triumphs, ecstasies, and tragedies of a soul on the edge of the despair-laden abyss of heart-rending loneliness that is at the core of all our existences. Unlike the rest of us, Ms. Heather Leigh Williams braves the breach; the question is, are we courageous enough to follow as Ms. Williams besieges and ultimately reigns ascendant over her own personal Harfleur? Denied a mother's love, Ms. Williams's narrator is wrapped in the wonderful embrace of her grandmother, a truly benevolent soul, and in the moist earth of the lush and savage Southern gardens she passionately cultivates. Lush and savage - beauty and pain - passion - words that perhaps are the best way to describe both the stories in Never Needed Saving and the corporeal form of Ms. Heather Leigh Williams herself!
