Look Inside

One More Tale for the Road

A final tale ignites the meltdown.

Dying matriarch, Ma’Kanu, is famous for her stories. Her last wish is to attend her own wake. In her niche of the world, this means a story and song fest. Ostracised on her deathbed by a vengeful community, her depleted wake is kept by a dysfunctional family dogged by a history of incest and patricide. The four tales contributed by foster children who haven’t met in years have more truth than fiction, and what began as a bedside game soon becomes deadly serious as close-kept secrets are outed. Then the lady ‘dying-in-state’ in provoked to tell a tale for the road, revealing family histories that threaten to tear her patchwork family apart. The finale, delivered by her long-time admirer, strips the protection of mystery she had worn all her life.

One novel, seven short stories, a new dimension of ‘unputdownable’.
