Metro Winds, Isobelle Carmody , single work short story fantasy

'When her parents are divorcing, a young girl is sent from her native Australia to an unnamed city in Europe to live with an aunt. The girl is strange and withdrawn. Even her own mother does not understand her. Less, so, the plump frowsy aunt she is sent to. The girl has dreams of a tunnel and something white which lives in it. On a day out with her aunt, she is unexpectedly on her own and must make her way home on the subway. Her dreams and her purpose in life come to fruition in this dark, moody, tale.'
