Description

Set against the backdrop of World War I, this collection of six stories follows the threads of love and intangible connection that bind people together in catastrophe. Moving from cities under siege to ocean liners sailing through dangerous waters, from places of refuge to places of conflict, these impressionistic tales explore a world enduring a trial by fire, and the people who must keep living, moving and breathing beyond the point of endurance. Contrasting the violence of forced change with the beauty of inner peace, flowing from hearts in endless sorrow to spirits breaking loose from tragedy, each separate story spills over into the next, filling this book of small tales up until the broken world it evokes begins to unravel its doom and embrace its healing.
