The Melting Candy

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
During the Cultural Revolution, an injured young girl encountered a whore in the OB/GYN ward of a military hospital. Without saying a word, they lived in the same room for 9 days. In complete silence, a bond sprouted between them. And in this brutal, judgmental world. The silent bond kept growing, perhaps only in this little girl's spiritual field.

Using descriptive wording to paint a very detailed picture of every scene, Lahmu Ray does wonderful job of telling a story from a child’s perspective. In this short story, readers will be reminded to not think close mindedly, but instead to see the beauty in everyone, regardless of what others may say. I definitely would recommend this story!

In language that is simple yet elegant, Ms. Lahmu Ray does a great job of drawing the reader in to show the world through a child's eyes. Life is never simply black and white, people are neither only good or bad, but multi-faceted and complex. This short story reminds readers the importance of having a kind heart, to express love, and to give everybody a chance.

'The Melting Candy' is a very poignant and emotional perspective of life from the eyes of someone who's innocent and naive to the grim realities of the world, yet aware of them at the same time. I feel like the namesake of the book is a metaphor of life, as a melting candy morphs and bends, just like life itself.
