A collection of short stories – each a treasure in its own right – packed with wisdom and a haunting otherworldly sense. Deceptively simply written these tales and their truths will lodge in your memory and tug at your heart.
Lucy Pearce, author, Reaching for the Moon and Moon Time
“Look at the moon!” the younger girl said, her bright green eyes wide with awe.
The sky was full of her, round and whole, shining down on them.
“What do you think the moon is?” asked the other.
“I don’t know. But she’s beautiful.”
“She is beautiful… and wise too,” came a voice from behind them.
Over forest floor, sea-washed beach and mountain pass, in worlds very like our own… these are stories for women on the cusp: girls becoming women; women becoming mothers; mothers becoming wise women. Each tale connects us with the motherline: daughter; mother; grandmother. They speak of what it feels like to be a woman; how we are powerful, how we can cope with loss and grief, and how we can move mountains.
These stories will whisper straight into your heart and illuminate your soul.
