The Stolen Child

The Stolen Child is a novella of one day in the life of a boy in the 1950s, a day that defines his existence from then on. It begins with a kiss from a girl and ends with a devastating insight into his mother's life, a life that has veered tragically off-course after the death of a soldier in World War II. He gets to know about love, loss, death, war and tragedy all in the course of that one day.
