Shedding Skin

A Novella by

How can a woman escape her routine if she's mired in it

Roseanna's mother is fond of telling her that if it hadn't been for the Halifax Explosion, she would never have been born. With every Sunday visit, Roseanna realizes her regular routine is becoming unnerving. She thinks of her grandmother, destined for the nunnery when the Explosion occurred and freed her from a sure life of routine.

But Roseanna's routine is tied to compassion, and how does one wrest herself from empathy?

Shedding Skin is a literary short story that examines the mother daughter relationship in the tradition of women's literature.
