AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'As a jealous six-year-old in communist Bulgaria, Anna betrayed the dangerous secrets her family shared around the coffee pot, with fatal consequences. Now the Brisbane River stirs up her guilty memories, like the River Styx where Charon ferries the souls of the dead. West End cafe culture brings relief and charming Manoli, a mortal Greek god who disarms her with his cooking and his tender bathing of his bedridden mother.' (One Book Many Brisbanes : Fifth Anthology of Brisbane Stories p. 36)
