Ruth sees an apparently abandoned child gazing at a swinging toy monkey in a shop window. She has faced her own abandonment. What will she do?
We journey with her from darkness to light through her redemptive, healing love for those close to her All is not quite what it seems though; she has a past which haunts her, Matthew has a past, Mark has a past, even little Emmie has a past…
Shattering of childhood innocence pervades the narrative. It is about knowledge: what was known, when and how, what knowledge is knowable when and how, what knowledge should be knowable when and how.Clowns appear and distort the vision with their tragi-comedic ways.
Tension builds, will Ruth’s past catch up with her?
And are you the reader complicit in past, present and future?
