These stories are grounded in everyday life, in its raw and tragic beauty. A loyal woman betrayed, another coming to terms with rape and her stolen childhood. Children carrying secret parcels and a man reflecting on his life as it comes to an end. Collected in the pages of this book readers will find love, heartbreak and revenge, death and sadness, the innocence of youth and the loss of that innocence.
Sometimes life lifts us up. Sometimes it leaves us broken. Sometimes it does both.
