  • Looking for Bianca: a short story on June 13, 2014

    I was particularly moved by the description of Tara's grief on learning of her sister's death. The writer has beautifully illustrated the intense emotions felt on hearing such bad news. I also enjoyed the subsequent trip to Italy and the way it shows how Tara is coming to terms with this tragedy in her life.
