Free short story (nook/Sony/Kindle) - This Is Not A Love Story [General Fiction]

This Is Not A Love Story, a short story from Lydia Peelle's Reasons For And Advantages Of Breathing collection, is free courtesy of publisher HarperCollins.

Free @ B&N and Sony (not available to Canadians), likely to show up elsewhere.

Description (no separate synopsis, so cribbed from full collection so you can a feel for what sort of stories Peele writes)
With this first book of fiction, a gifted young writer brings together eight superbly crafted stories that peer deeply into the human heart, exploring lives derailed by the loss of a vital connection to the land and to the natural world of which they are a part.

"Mule Killers" evokes the end of an era and of a grandfather's dreams when he decides to replace animal power on his farm with tractors. Two restless young girls in "Sweethearts of the Rodeo" live out their last summer of innocence, riding ponies recklessly and spying on their boss and the wealthy women who visit him. In "Phantom Pain," the Tennessee woods are a sliver of what they once were, men now hunt with GPS and cell phones, and the rumor of a dangerous panther on the loose stirs up a small town.

An unexpected vision of the beauty and mystery of life redeems the darkest moments in this stellar debut collection, a book that readers will want to read and reread.

Now also free from Amazon (not free for Canadians). Also, I forgot to add Sony to the title when originally posted, and if a mod could please fix that, I'd be most grateful.
