Product description


This collection of stories explores the intimate workings of a woman's heart and mind. Inspired by moments and thoughts from a life, the tales distil memory into compelling narratives that veer from the personal to the universal.

From the Publisher

The intimate workings of a woman¿s mind and heart.
‘A powerful account of what matters … Merilyn Simonds is a writer of powerful talent who has the mysterious ability, in calling up her ghosts, to release also one’s own’ INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

‘If you like Anne Michaels, Michael Ondaatje or Margaret Atwood, you will like this’ HARPERS AND QUEEN

‘A lyrical homage to memory ... this is writing that not only takes the readers on an adventure, but leads them unavoidably into their own dormant past; truly illuminating’ THE TIMES

‘A gorgeous book about life, full of shadow and shards of precious stones. If it was a painting, it would be by Gauguin’ CANADA POST
