More than a dozen stories about loss, despair and letting go - a theme that in the hands of a writer of Nisha da Cunha's sensitivity and insightfulness, weaves grief into a rare and haunting tapestry.
The other woman waiting in her cottage by the sea for her married lover; the older woman who spurns her young admirer 'for his sake', only to find after he is no more that she has banished him to a lonely life; a man and a girl obsessed with each other from afar who find only disillusionment when meet at last; a girl trapped in silence, bereft of a voice, in a flash of a terrible second...
Stories about the commonplace and the everyday that illuminate the little disappointments and the all encompassing tragedies that we see around us and in our own lives.
