Rather than talking about one of Belle Boggs’ short stories I would like to address how she connected “Good News for a Hard Time” and “Homecoming” so that they both have the same setting, the rural county of King William, Virginia. This county just so happens to be the county that Belle Boggs grew up in, and it would not be surprising if parts of her short stories were inspired by events she personally witnessed. However, I find it appropriate that both stories share a common setting and a personal connect to the author. As it makes Belle Boggs story telling more complete, allowing the two short stories to truly become just one story with multiply perspectives, similar to the style that Belle Boggs choose to write “Deer Season” in.
