Review of Tisha Marie Reichle-Aguilera, “Seven Strands,” Luna Station Quarterly 50 (2022): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.
When Cristian’s aunt tells him that something has happened and his mother needs him, he is in agony of worry until he can make the trek back home, bringing his girlfriend Norma along with. But Norma isn’t there just to support Cristian; she has her own designs afoot!
