April and May

Prahran Press | Published : 2019


Every weekday April has the 4WD waiting at the school gate well before 3.30pm and a raft of after-school activities in hand to keep them all occupied. But seven years worth of long lunches with her single friend Louis and two half days a week at the gallery have left this doctor’s wife wondering if there is anything else. When Jeremy the private tutor comes into her life, and her foster daughter May comes of age, April begins to feel like a hothouse orchid, although she really longs to be a wild flower.
