"Good Neighbors," like the other two Dry Gables collections, is a unique series of stories centered around the people who live and work in a gold rush era small town in South Dakota. Each of the characters has their own reason for coming to Dry Gables and each offers an essential ingredient to the town's well-being. The characters embody different ways of being in the world — with unique behaviors, motivations, and fears.
The stories in our latest Dry Gables collection are offered in long-form divided into three parts — so you can save them for long car rides or times when you want to dive deep into Sparkle Land.
