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 in a gun accident 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.
