Set in the Appalachian landscape, Rose McLarney's debut collection, The Always Broken Plates of Mountains, gives voice to a chorus of speakers, who are at once plainspoken, reverent, and musical. "There is a tenderness that persists" as McLarney explores mountain land and those who live and love and lose on it, and what it means to be faithful--to oneself, to one's heritage, and to one another.
