A Flower in the Heart of the PaintingA Flower in the Heart of the Painting, a collection of short stories. Set almost exclusively in the rural heart of the Midwest, A Flower in the Heart of the Painting is populated by a cast of quiet characters whose land and interior lives are brought into full relief. Like Tolstoi and Cather, Krohn draws us into unassuming, ordinary dramas in order to reveal that, in spite of
our best efforts to live compartmentalized, comfortable lives loosened from the transcendent, everything is at stake.
