Who has come to visit having been disturbed by the summer storms and so compelled to roam, in the shadows?
about the author
I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.
What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.
Review by Maria Adams on 31 July 2017
Luna was a predator. She wore a heavy black coat and her movements were smooth and fast in the face of great danger.
Her senses told her that the night air was different and to be careful as she slowly dared to see what the danger might be.
She was frightened and tried to run to safety where she met even greater danger! Humans !! Luna’s escape was unique and she was able to feed her babies. Leaving behind the humans who were equally afraid of the visitor that had invaded their bedroom on this cold wet stormy night .
A clever story that has fear and humour and the ah factor until the identity of the intruder is revealed!!!
