Review from the CUT team....

Colette captures the harshness of the parched, drought ridden landscape beautifully and her evocative, poetic prose gives us a short glimpse into a life where whispers and trouble follow the protagonists and the red dust of the scorched earth clings to all it touches, like guilt on a troubled conscience. A captivating short story.
