These Fragile Things
Life can change in a split second. And nothing you can do will stop it.
‘Very occasionally a story jumps out at you with a raw burst of originality and thought-provocation that goes deeper than most, leaving you pondering the issues and plot lines unfolding in front of you. That story is These Fragile Things.’ ~ Lorraine Devon Wilke, Author

Half-truths and White Lies
Winner of the Daily Mail First Novel Award
Half-truths & White Lies is a beautifully crafted, thought-provoking novel that questions the influence of the people who are missing from our lives. It examines the thin line between love and friendship, looking at our complex emotional needs. It also explores how one woman’s life is dictated by her desire for children, whilst another’s is shaped by her decision not to have them.
