Winner of the 2015 International Frank O'Connor Short Story Award Winner of the 2015 Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize Shortlisted for the 2015 Wales Book of the Year: Fiction Shortlisted for the 2015 Edge Hill Short Story Prize In a remote Australian settlement a young wife with an untellable secret reluctantly invites her neighbour into her home. A Quaker spinster offers companionship to a condemned man in a Colorado jail. In the ice and snows of Siberia an office employee from Birmingham witnesses a scene that will change her life. At a jubilee celebration in a northern English town a middle-aged alderman opens his heart to Queen Victoria. A teenage daughter leaves home in search of adventure. High in the Cumbrian fells a woman seeks help from her father's enemy. Spare, precise, charged with a prickly wit, the stories in Carys Davies's sparkling second collection remind us how little we know of the lives of others.
