Kissed to death
Five minutes is all it takes. Five minutes of violence in the wartime blackout. Five minutes that cast a very long shadow. After war ends, little Kenny lives with his granny who can’t find words to explain where he has come from. He knows not to ask.
An intriguing story which is deeply insightful into the impact of early experience of loss and secrets on adult relationships.
