Summary

During a cold, British winter, three women reach crisis point.
Emily, an immigrant survivor of the Rwandan genocide, is existing but not living. Vera, a Christian Londoner, is striving to live a moral life, undermined by secrets from her past. Lynn, battling a disease, is consumed by resentment of what she hasn't achieved.
Each suffers her own demons. But as their paths interweave, they begin to unravel their pasts, and change each other's futures.

Great imagery but disappointing ending!

Probably not clever enough to appreciate subtlety or draw my own conclusions, but found the story ended abruptly and I was left wondering about the loose ends. What I call an unsatisfactory ending. Apart from that, very well written, with some vivid imagery; some of it so vivid that it was difficult to cope with at times but presumably factually based and these things need to be graphically described.
