SYNOPSIS
Allison does not accept gifts. Not even on her birthday. Not even from her fiancé. So when she finds herself without her wallet and unable to pay the tab for an expensive lunch with a friend, it is with great reluctance that she accepts the generosity of a total stranger. Determined to repay his kindness, Allison comes face-to-face with the dark secrets that drive her inability to accept even the simplest act of benevolence.

Reading starts at 7pm, discussion to follow.

REVIEWS
“Caisley excels at placing evocatively drawn characters in situations of social and personal conflict, all the while mixing comedy with angst, then mining the dramatic results.”

“You’ll laugh a lot and leave thinking about benevolence and kindness, loneliness and redemption.”
