Book Description
Painting Pictures features eight stories of discovery, betrayal, and passion. In these stories, set in Canada and the Caribbean, the day-to-day incidents set the stage for events that impact and change lives. The stories depict the emotional turmoil that results from decisions: a little girl who migrates to Canada on a hot August day is flabbergasted to discover there's no snow; a graphic designer leaves her husband each morning to meet her lover; an inconsolable heartbreak leads a woman to the brink of sanity as she desperately wanders city streets seeking answers in dark places; a young woman gives a touching eulogy to the woman who raised her; a wife is torn between her love for her husband and his brother; a college graduate moves across the country to keep a secret and recover from the lover who abandoned her, only to meet him again; a young woman experiences the joy of first love, its passionate awakening, and the moment when it's questioned; and three women bond while shopping for dresses for their fictional weddings.
