Seven short stories: A dying mother battles to secure a daughter’s inheritance. The daughter of another family seeks peace as her mother’s dementia escalates. A grandmother makes an astonishing decision. Events lead a young woman to doubt the youthful, emotional connection she had with her vibrant grandmother. An elusive memory frustrates a mother of twins. An elderly lady gets the better of a young couple. Suddenly a child’s future is under threat.
Hopefully the story situations will resonate ― because of familiarity, or because there’s a sense of that’s what it can be like for some people, or because I never thought of that or because of unfinished business.
