In the short stories by Belle Boggs, they are all set in a rural setting. Even though two of the stories, “Deer Season” and “Election Day,” do not explicitly say where they are set (county or state), the reader can picture the ruralness of the story. But in her stories “Good News for a Hard Time” and “Homecoming,” they are bothering set in King William County, Virginia. King William County is a small county along the Mattaponi River, which is named after the Native American tribe, the Mattaponi. King William County is the county that Belle Boggs grew up in, and it is a place she seems to use for settings in her short stories a lot.
