Book Description

The themes of love, loss, regret and hope are explored in this collection of four short stories which look at the hidden territory within ordinary lives and the triggers for seemingly random actions.

Escape – a new baby should bring joy and happiness, but the reality is often very different.

Underground – however hard you work to forget the past, it's still there.

High Noon – Friday night romance at the supermarket.

Footprints – love, loss and the nature of relationships. The idea for this story came from the discovery of footprints in the Australian outback. The footprints were made in moist clay around 20,000 years ago.

Also included is the original opening section of Lives Interrupted and the prologue of Shauna's latest novel Still Death.

3.0 out of 5 stars Footprints 8 Dec. 2012
By Eager Reader - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Escape - 2 stars
Written in first person which threw me a bit. While the writing was okay, the ending left me in want.

Underground - 3 stars
Well written from the stand point of a depressed person. Good read.

High Noon - 2 stars
Follows a guy on a Friday night; nothing too spectacular.

Footprints - 4 stars
This is the short story that Bickley shined with; she saved her best for last. It was noted at the end of the book, the author wrote the shorts over a span of years, and my guess is this was her last written. It was beautiful, poetic, and touching in its prose.
