“The Four Corners of the Sky” is master storyteller Michael Malone’s novel of love, secrets and the mysterious bonds of families. Malone brings characters to life as only he can, exploring the questions that defy easy answers: Is love a choice or a calling? Why do the ties of family bind so tightly? And is forgiveness a gift to others — or a gift we give ourselves?
