AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Are we slaves to destiny or architects of our own fate? Bearings is about challenging the course of our lives as well as keeping a foothold during unpredictable times.

'In this affecting novella and collection of stories, Leah Swann burrows deep into the souls of her characters to reveal universal complexities, frailties and strengths. From searching for love to coping with grief, Bearings provides a map of the human condition, deftly drawn by an exciting new Australian talent with a sharp eye for instinctive behaviours and emotional truths.' (From the publisher's website.)
