Rory, My Brother

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 review
It’s hard to live with some people, and harder to live without them. This story is based on a real family I meet some years ago. Their plight touched me, not least of all that of the older brother. Because the family tried to protect him, he seemed farthest removed from the unfolding tragedy. But there was no protecting him from the fact that sometimes, unfortunately, love hurts.

Reviews of Rory, My Brother by Kate Walker

Viga Boland reviewed on May 21, 2013

When it comes to discovering a character through their words, actions and thoughts, it's hard to beat Kate Walker. She has mastered the art of saying so much in so few words. This short story is only 5 pages long but we see a lifetime of the relationship between 2 brothers. Kate's writing is gutsy, hard-hitting and honest, revealing what people really do think and feel even when they tell no-one else what is in their hearts. This is awesome writing. Loved it!
