Kim Fairley, Writer

Summer of Stan

When I was twenty-five, newly married to my husband, Vern, and had just learned I was pregnant with our first child, the widow of my husband’s dear friend called from 800 miles away to ask if we would take her eleven-year-old son for two weeks.

Dealing with the grief of losing his own son and facing his own mortality, Vern agreed to take the boy into our home.

“Summer of Stan” is a love story but it also explores the ongoing, wrenching aftermath of violence and the healing that comes with confronting our past.
